Tea with Yale School of Public Health on Big Questions in Public Health: Challenges and Multi-Sector Solutions

Sunday, 18 Mar, 2018 16:00 - 17:30
Atrium Lounge at the Marina Mandarin (Level 4)

Emerging trends and disruptive forces: what factors impact our health, now and in the future? We face escalating threats of urbanization, global migration, climate change, smog, emerging infections and antimicrobial resistance. Complex health systems and corporate mergers have had limited impact on human behaviour – like food choice, sedentary lifestyle and tobacco – and the consequent epidemics of non-communicable diseases that impact our lifespan and our healthspan. And yet, there is tremendous opportunity and upside potential. We must leverage tools across multiple sectors along with social and technological innovation to build capacity, engineer environments and inspire behavior change as well as to promote human resilience and social connectedness. Join in a lively discussion with Yale School of Public Health Dean Sten Vermund and Deputy Dean Jeannette Ickovics (visiting this year at Yale-NUS College) to ask your “big questions”.

Cost: Pay for your own F&B (otherwise free to attend)

RSVP: sarah.ong@aya.yale.edu

Separately, Dean Vermund and Deputy Dean Ickovics will be speaking at another event the following day (19th March): https://www.eventbrite.com/e/the-future-of-public-health-leadership-perspectives-from-east-west-tickets-43302157920

KCLASS Duel Day Dinner 2018

Saturday, 24 Mar, 2018 19:00 - 22:00
8 Café & Bar, 8 Bukit Pasoh Rd, 089822

King's College London Alumni Society Singapore is pleased to invite you to to Duel Day - KCL's annual commemoration of a duel fought at the beginning of the college's history. Duel Day is a chance to remember our roots and history, and this year’s theme is 1950s Chinatown. Chinatown in the 50s and 60s was a very different and far more colourful place. Undertakers, brothels, Chinese opera, street food, gambling dens, opium dens, gangster hideouts, and even a club for millionaires and their mistresses could be found in various lanes. Come dressed as a character from 1950s Chinatown – there will be prizes for the best-dressed. A highlight of the evening will be a talk by a local historian and budding author, giving a brief history of transport in Chinatown. Festivities will include quiz games on the origin of street names in the Chinatown area, with prizes to be won! All are welcome, so don't be shy - come have fun! We look forward to seeing everyone that evening.

Cost: $60 for buffet dinner including two drinks
