Brown School Convocation

Add to Calendar
Clark-Fox Forum

You are invited to the 2019 Brown School Convocation and Distinguished Faculty Award Presentation which kicks off the 2019-2020 academic year. Our featured speaker will be Professor Doug Luke, director of the PhD Program in Public Health Sciences and 2019 Distinguished Faculty Awardee. The title of his talk is "Your World as a Network."

Luke is a leading researcher in the areas of public health policy, systems science and tobacco control. He directs work focused primarily on the evaluation, dissemination and implementation of evidence-based public health policies. Over the past decade, Luke has used systems science methods, especially social network analysis and agent-based modeling, to address important public health problems. Under his leadership, the Center for Public Health Systems Science has used network analysis to study diffusion of scientific innovations, to model the formation of organizational collaborations, and to study the relationship of mentoring to future scientific collaboration. In addition to his appointment at the Brown School, Luke is a member of the Institute for Public Health, the director of evaluation for the Institute of Clinical and Translational Science and a founding member of the Washington University Network of Dissemination and Implementation Researchers.

Light refreshments will be served immediately after Convocation.
