Mon 12/7/2015 8:00 AM - 4:30 PM

On December 7, 2015, a panel of distinguished speakers joined 150 participant-observers at Pitt Public Health's second annual Jonas Salk Symposium. During this year's symposium scholars representing different fields discussed the intersection of wisdom and aging, each through a unique lens ranging from anthropology to neurobiology.  A lively discussion was held between the panelists and observers representing the University and Pittsburgh communities, including several dozen participants from the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute. 

Following the symposium, panelists gathered to begin work on an article for publication. Pitt Public Health continues to advance this topic through the Center for Aging and Population Health and in collaboration with the UPMC/Pitt Aging Institute.

Thu 3/17/2016 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Pitt Public Health and the Global Health Student Association Presents: "The Naked Truth: Death by Fentanyl." Pre-mix & mingle at 6-7pm. Film begins at 7pm followed by a distinguished panel discussion moderated by Dean Dr. Donald Burke. The documentary highlights how fentanyl is 50 times stronger than heroin. So potent, three grains are lethal to an adult. First synthesized in the 1960s, it’s been used to treat severe pain in cancer patients. Today, fentanyl has two main sources: the prescription drug industry, and Mexican drug cartels. And it’s the quiet culprit behind the current “heroin” crisis, one of the deadliest drug epidemics in American history. In the documentary above, “Death by Fentanyl,” Fusion’s The Naked Truth investigates the rise of fentanyl in all its forms … and its sometimes deadly consequences. In the stories, learn how FENTANYL FIRST HIT THE STREETS, Breaking Bad-style; how the drug HAS TRANSFORMED LIFE in one major U.S. city; and how some of its legal manufacturers also profit from drugs to reverse its deadly effects. Reception prior to movie begins at 6 p.m.
