Social Capital Inc. is excited to announce an SCI Forum on Social Capital and Health scheduled for May 8th, 2015. The forum will feature keynote speaker Dr Sandro Galea, Dean of Boston University School of Public Health. Dr Galea, a physician and epidemiologist, has focused research on the social production of health of urban populations. He is also interested in the consequences of mass trauma and conflict worldwide. Dr Galea will speak on how his research and experience relates to the link between social capital and health outcomes in our region, the United States, and the world. Galea’s keynote address will be followed by a panel discussion featuring local health practitioners, public officials, philanthropists, and community health advocates. Finally, over lunch, attendees will break into small groups to discuss ways to encourage and sustain a culture of health through social capital and collaboration. This event is the second forum SCI has organized, following 2013's SCI Forum on Social Capital and the Economy. The SCI Forum on Social Capital and Health will take place at 10:00am-1:00pm on Friday, May 8th at the Boston University Medical Campus.
