The Lancet Commission on public policy and health in the Trump era is the first comprehensive assessment of the health effects of President Trump’s policies. Led by 33 leading experts from the US, UK and Canada, the Commission was tasked with chronicling the repercussions of the administration’s actions and charting policies for a healthy future.
At the launch, the authors will present key findings and recommendations from the Commission. The presentations will be followed by a question and answer session chaired by Richard Horton, Editor-in-Chief, The Lancet.
Richard Horton will offer welcome remarks. Key findings of the commission will be presented by Roosevelt House faculty associates Steffie Woolhandler and David Himmelstein, Distinguished Professors of Public Health at Hunter College, City University of New York, and Lecturers at Harvard Medical School; Mary T. Bassett, former Commissioner of the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene and Director of the François-Xavier Bagnoud Center for Health and Human Rights at Harvard University; and Kevin Grumbach, Professor of Family Community Medicine at the University of California, San Francisco. 
There will then be a question and answer session chaired by Rebecca Cooney, North American Executive Editor, The Lancet.
This event is hosted by Roosevelt House Public Policy Institute at Hunter College. The Commission will be published by The Lancet on 11th February. The Commission was supported by grants from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and the Open Society Foundations.
