Previous Programs

Additional projects supported by the Joan H. Tisch Legacy project include support of a Joan H. Tisch Distinguished Fellow in Public Health and the Joan H. Tisch Public Health Forum.

The forum, an annual symposium focusing on national and New York City public health issues, has hosted experts from think tanks, academia and the media who address the critical public health issues of our time. Notable speakers include Katie Couric, who was a producer for “Fed Up,” Dr. Peter Oszag, former director of the Office of Management and Budget in the Obama administration, and Richard Besser, Chief Health and Medical Editor, ABC News and former Acting Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Fellows supported by the Joan H. Tisch Distinguished Fellow program have come from around the United States and the world to share their expertise with their fellow academics, students, the public and outside experts. Programing has included panels bringing together experts on emergency recovery post Sandy, policy makers and experts on urban planning for environmental sustainability and New York City public health issues.
