Today’s news of pandemic and racism has catapulted the field of public health onto the global stage. Public health education, in particular, has come into focus as a critical tool for navigating misinformation and shedding light on the truths of our moment. This pursuit of truth is embedded even in Harvard University’s guiding motto—Veritas. With this vision in mind, the incoming cohort at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health was welcomed by CHDS Faculty Director Sue J. Goldie. This special welcome was recently featured in the Harvard Gazette article, “Preparing Grad and Professional Schools for Remote Fall.”
Goldie’s welcome message offers insight from her experience in the fields of medicine, global health, and decision science and as an educator and policy expert keenly aware of decisions in public health and the profound, far-reaching implications that they have globally. At this crucial moment in online pedagogy and public health, Dr. Goldie has developed the course Foundations for Public Health, partnering with the CHDS and GHELI, and leveraging their expertise in multimodal learning and pedagogy experimentation.
