Join us either in person or on Zoom!
Meet Anoop Jain (DrPH, UCB) and Alissa Bilifield (PhD, TU SPHTM) and hear their stories about research and entrepreneurship to advance public health. Expect about 30 min of sharing by alumni followed by open Q&A with Zoom and in-person attendees. Join us to connect with alum and learn about alternative careers. This event is the first public activity of the Social Innovation Learning Lab (SILL) of the SPHTM. We are showcasing alumni who represent models of social entrepreneurship, social intrapreneurship, integration of design thinking into research, and applications of systems-change and design-thinking tools for programs and policies.
SILL is working to inspire students to learn more about social innovation tools like design-thinking, and global social innovation “ecosystem” actors, like Echoing Green, Ashoka, and Skoll. We are exploring possible directions for an SPHTM social innovation learning community that supports graduate students with their changemaking-related career and life pathways, as well as connecting and supporting with faculty and staff interested in social innovation.
We are thrilled to feature two panelists who merge social entrepreneurship and research in public health in unique ways:
