This virtual forum at the College of St. Scholastica features a presentation from an American diplomat about how data affects public health policy decisions. The LaTour Eichenwald Forum on Health Informatics and Information Management Leadership and Innovation will host retired ambassador Jimmy Kolker as guest speaker.

Kolker, who formerly served as chief of the HIV/AIDS Section at UNICEF’s New York headquarters and assistant secretary for global affairs at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, will be speaking on the topic: “How diplomats and policy creators use (or fail to use) data and evidence when making decisions about public health interventions.” The event will begin at 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 19 via Zoom.
