Preventing Brain Disorders, Improving Global Mental Health

Friday, May 2, 2014 - 8:30am - 3:30pm
Columbia University Medical Center Alumni Auditorium Black Building

Preventing Brain Disorders, Improving Global Mental Health is a Columbia University Epidemiology Scientific Symposium (CUESS), part of a series dedicated to exploring cutting edge scientific topics in epidemiology and population health.  This invitation-only series brings together leaders in the field and aims to both explore the state-of-the science and to push the research agenda forward. This event is co-sponsored by Columbia University Department of Epidemiology and the Peter C. Alderman Foundation.


This event will capitalize on the growing interest in prevention of mental illness as playing a central role in public mental health agendas.  We are honored that Dr. Shekar Saxena, Director of the Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse at the World Health Organization, has agreed to present the opening keynote at the event.
