On January 16, 2019, a panel discussion with Professor Barry Bloom, Joan and Julius Jacobson Research Professor of Public Health and Dean Emeritus of Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health was held. Attended by students of the HKUMed Master of Public Health programme and secondary school students aspiring to become future global health and development leaders, all of whom received useful career guidance and insight from Professor Bloom.
