ModeratorJean McGuire (professor of Health Sciences, Northeastern University; former Assistant Commissioner for Public Health and Assistant Secretary, Executive Office of Health and Human Services)

Are community health policies up to speed on the viruses we face in the 21st century? Quarantining is so antiquated – does it even work, particularly when the state can't enforce it? Do the CDC’s policies really mitigate the passing of HIV? Where does border law come into play regarding the spread of disease? Ford Hall Forum discusses curbing the transmission of contagious diseases at the intersection of science, politics, and human nature.
