NYAM is proud to be a participant in the World Innovation Summit for Health (WISH), a high-profile initiative that aims to promote and facilitate innovation in the delivery of health care around the globe. NYAM President Jo Ivey Boufford and Deputy Director for Health Policy Ana Garcia will attend the Summit in Doha, Qatar on December 10-11.
NYAM’s health policy team led the research for the WISH obesity working group over several months in 2013, supporting the esteemed chair Shiriki Kumanyika, PhD, MPH, Professor of Epidemiology at the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine, and a committee of experts from around the world. The report, Strategic Action to Combat the Obesity Epidemic, was written by Dr. Kumanyika, Dr. Kimberly Libman, and Ms. Garcia, and can be downloaded here.
The Summit will bring together a distinguished audience of leaders and key decision-makers and influencers of global health systems and policy, including heads of state, ministers, senior government officials, academics and thinkers, as well as the most influential business leaders, to stimulate implementation of practical, sustainable, and innovative solutions to tackle global health challenges.
