Cambridge, MA – Christopher Murray, the Richard Saltonstall professor of population policy at the Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) and director of the Global Health Initiative at Harvard University will deliver the inaugural Angelopoulos Lecture on Nov. 1 at the Kennedy School of Government. The lecture will begin at 8 p.m. at the John F. Kennedy Jr. Forum, 79 JFK Street, Cambridge.

Murray is a physician and health economist who has spearheaded major new approaches to the measurement of public health, cost-effectiveness analysis, and the application of health systems performance assessment. He is the former executive director of the Evidence and Information for Policy Cluster at the World Health Organization.

The Angelopoulos Lecture Series is intended to support the mission of preparing a new generation of leaders to strengthen democratic ideals and to understand, anticipate and resolve future health challenges. The series, along with the creation of the Angelopoulos Professorship in Public Health and International Development, reflects long-time concerns of its benefactors, Mr. Theodore Angelopoulos and Mrs. Gianna Angelopoulos-Daskalaki, and will allow Harvard University to enhance its contribution to the global public health policy debate.

This event is open to the press and the public. Journalists interested in covering the Forum should contact the Kennedy School Communications Office at (617) 495-1115 to reserve space on the press riser. A live Vivex video/audio feed of this Forum will be available.

This event will be web-streamed live on the Institute of Politics website: http://www.iop.harvard.edu/events_forum.html
