Steven Woolf, MD, MPH is the Professor C. Kenneth and Dianne Wright Distinguished Chair in Population Health and Health Equity, and Director Emeritus and Senior Advisor, VCU Center on Society and Health. Professor Woolf’s career has been spent at the intersection of medicine and public health.
The purpose of the lecture is to inspire, interrogate, and explore the ideas at the nexus of medicine and public health, and to spur actions that move these ideas forward together.
The Columbia Street Lecture is inspired by the main north/south corridor through campus. Columbia Street separates the Schools of Medicine and Public Health at UNC. For several decades, medical and public health faculty and students have crossed Columbia Street to bring the two fields together. This lecture celebrates those who helped bring together the worlds of public health and medicine at UNC Chapel Hill.
