In this episode, Crown Family School Associate Professor Alida Bouris is joined by Ertharin Cousin for a conversation about the challenges and opportunities in the field of global health and development. Bouris's research is broadly focused on the relationship between social context and health, with a particular emphasis on understanding how social inequality, social networks, and social support shape the health and well-being of historically excluded and marginalized youth and adult populations. Cousin is the CEO and Managing Director of Food Systems for the Future. She led the United Nations World Food Program from 2012 until 2017.

This conversation was held during the recent launch of the Susan and Richard Kiphart Center for Global Health and Social Development. Housed in the Crown Family School, the Kiphart Center will build on the University of Chicago's global health efforts. The Center aims to further integrate multidisciplinary expertise and expand collaborations to promote community health and well-being in communities around the world.
