WGHA Executive Roundtable with Dr. John Nkengasong
April 13, 2018 @ 8:45 am - 10:00 am
Before Dr. Nkengasong was appointed as the first director of the Africa CDC last year, he was with the U.S. CDC for more than 20 years, most recently as principal deputy director of the Center for Global Health. He will be joined by his senior advisor, Dr. Jay Varma, here in Seattle. Dr. Nkengasong’s visit feels especially timely in light of the U.S.CDC’s recent decision to begin pulling back resources from 37 of the 48 countries it’s working in currently to strengthen health systems.
Please note, this is a closed event for members of WGHA’s Executive Roundtable.
