The Worrying Paradox of Modern Medical Miracles

December 7, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Thomas J. Bollyky, senior fellow for global health, economics, and development and director of the Global Health program at the Council on Foreign Relations, will lead the luncheon conversation on The Worrying Paradox of Modern Medical Miracles.

Mr. Bollyky, author of Plagues and the Paradox of Progress, will discuss how advancements in treating infectious disease have made the world healthier but paradoxically are leading to greater instability, as countries struggle to adapt health-care, education, and labor systems to the needs of larger populations. This meeting is cosponsored with the Council on Foreign Relations.
