Past Event

Join the Office of the Dean and the Student Assembly for a Bloomberg School screening of the first episode in new four-part documentary series about public health.

The Invisible Shield, from Radical Media with support from Bloomberg Philanthropies, reveals how the field of public health has saved countless lives, protecting people from the constant threat of disease and increasing life spans.

The series explores public health’s hidden infrastructure and its policies and systems that make modern life possible. It highlights the thousands of unsung heroes — physicians, nurses, scientists, activists, reformers, engineers, and government officials — who work together to improve health outcomes, from the days of cholera and smallpox through the most recent battle with COVID-19. Featured JHU voices include Josh Sharfstein, Ellen Mackenzie, Lisa Cooper, Crystal Watson, Nana Adofo-Ansong, Ashu Mishra, Lauren Gardner, Rupali Limaye, and Caitlin Rivers. 

The screening event will include welcome remarks by Dean Ellen MacKenzie and closing remarks by Vice Dean Joshua Sharfstein.

The series debuts on PBS and the PBS app on March 26.
