Jeremy Smith and Christopher Murray

[tab title=”Details”]

The Global Burden of Disease study–piloted by UW’s Dr. Christopher Murray and backed by funders like the Gates Foundation–reports on the world’s health problems, how people live, and how they die. Murray’s groundbreaking quest to improve people’s lives by measuring health in every country is expertly chronicled in journalist Jeremy Smith’s Epic Measures. From Murray’s search for independent data to understand what makes people sick to his recommendations on how to improve population health, Smith’s portrayal of Murray shows him as a man of intellect, character, and dedication. This discussion will explore Murray’s challenge of the status quo and how it is changing the course of global health.
