NYUCD Hosts Forum on "Global Health in a Flatter World: Transforming Learning and Practice with Information Technology"

Dr. Robert Berne, NYU's executive vice president for health

For the third consecutive year, NYUCD hosted the New York State Global Health Forum, an initiative cosponsored by The Associated Medical Schools of New York and The New York State Academic Dental Centers.

The daylong event, held in December, brought together nearly 100 faculty, staff, and students from medical schools, dental schools, affiliate nursing schools, and public health schools throughout New York State to focus on utilizing emerging information and communications technologies to improve global health.

Dr. Robert Berne, NYU's executive vice president for health, welcomed the guests. Featured speakers included Dean Bertolami and Dr. Michael P. O'Connor, vice dean for finance and administration, along with faculty members from Weill Medical College, Mount Sinai School of Medicine, Columbia University Medical Center, NYU College of Nursing, and NYU School of Medicine. As in previous years, Dr. O'Connor was a key organizer of the forum.
