Office of Global Health Lecture featuring: Dr. Nicholas Bergfeld MD, MPP
From Michelle Ensminger
Nick is a research fellow with the Rawls College of Business. He grew up in Lubbock and is a proud alumnus of TTU. He attended Yale for medical school and Harvard for public policy before working for an impact investing private equity firm based in Singapore. He returned to Lubbock to work in economic development policy three years ago. Nick's Lecture (Understanding disparities in Lubbock, TX) will discuss how disparities in society often are a product and are reinforced by government policy. Quantifying disparities in a comprehensive way is challenging in resource-limited environments and requires the augmentation of data with personal narrative in order to convey needed information. Successful execution can be the foundation of modern advocacy movements.
