Frenk @ Media ~ Empowerment Thru Knowledge

This coming Wednesday November 18, 2009 from 11a to 12noon in Bartos Theatre, the MIT Media Lab's Social Health Initiative hosts Harvard School of Public Health Dean Julio Frenk for a talk on Empowerment Through Knowledge: Determinants of Progress in Global Health.
"The MIT Media Laboratory is launching a Social Health Initiative, and a series of inaugural keynote lectures. Our goal is to create a network of organizations and tools that help people thrive, staying healthy and happy during their entire lives. Because social health is intimately intertwined with social support, adequate wealth, self-determination, and security, a successful social health system must take a holistic view of life."
The transformative implications of consumer-centric and systemic-holistic health are enormous. This is a must-see event and the Social Health Initiative is worthy of your close attention.
