Watch “Toward a Science of Integration for Global Health Equity” with Gene Bukhman, PhD, MD, our 25th Research Day Keynote Speaker.

This year’s Research Day theme is “Innovations in Global Health and Global Health Technologies.”

We are honored and delighted to welcome our distinguished Visiting Professor, the esteemed Dr. Gene Y. Bukhman, MD, PhD, as our distinguished Visiting Professor.

Dr. Bukhman, an Associate Professor of Medicine and an Associate Professor of Global Health and Social Medicine at Harvard Medical School, brings a wealth of experience as a practicing cardiologist and medical anthropologist. He is also the Senior Health and Policy Advisor on Noncommunicable Diseases (NCDs) at Partners In Health (PIH) where he directs the NCD Synergies project.

Over the past 15 years, Dr. Bukhman has argued that for those living in extreme poverty, NCDs are best understood as part of the “long tail” of global health equity that demands a new “science of integration.” He has translated this critique into practical delivery strategies such as “PEN-Plus” that are now impacting patients’ lives in more than a dozen countries.

Dr. Bukhman’s outstanding contributions have garnered more than 100 peer-reviewed publications and book chapters that apply a range of methodologies from ethnography and archival research to epidemiology and mathematical modelling to identify solutions to the problem of “NCDI Poverty.”

Dr. Bukhman was the lead-author and co-chair of the 1996-2020 Lancet Commission on Reframing NCDs and Injuries for the Poorest Billion and is currently co-chair of the 22-country NCDI Poverty Network launched in December of 2020 to support implementation of the Lancet Commission’s recommendations.

Dr. Bukhman will present his groundbreaking research at Grand Rounds on Thursday, December 7th at 7:00 AM at Hurd Hall.
