Director of Yale University’s Prevention Research Center
When: Tuesday, February 9, 2021 at 7:00-8:00 PM CT
Title: The Acute Case for Chronic Health: Vital Lessons In Weathering Duress
The Corgan Lecture
The COVID pandemic has hurt people by direct infection with SARS-CoV-2, with all of the adverse consequences now well known. It has hurt people as well by the unintended consequences of haphazard interdiction policies resulting in mass unemployment, supply chain disruptions, the amplification of social disparities, and the degradation of social determinants of health. Dr. David Katz will explore the concept of “total harm minimization” and the implementation of risk-stratified (vertical) interdiction policies, including implications for mental health. Whether or not management of this pandemic can still be enhanced, there is at least the chance to do better next time, but only if we learn the lessons of our failures.
Dr. Katz is the founding director (1998-2019) of Yale University’s Yale-Griffin Prevention Research Center, Past-President of the American College of Lifestyle Medicine, Founder/President of the True Health Initiative, and Founder/CEO of Diet ID, Inc. He earned his BA degree from Dartmouth College (1984); his MD from the Albert Einstein College of Medicine (1988); and his MPH from the Yale University School of Public Health (1993).
