The goal of the series is to recognize a public health leader whose enduring efforts have made a significant impact on advancing public health. At this meeting, Dr. Murthy will recognize Dr. Dave A. Chokshi, for his leadership in addressing public trust, mental health, misinformation, and health disparities among the AA and NHPI communities.

The event will feature an introduction from Dr. Rena D’Souza, Director of the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research at NIH, followed by a conversation between the two panelists moderated by Dr. Monica Webb Hooper, Deputy Director of NIMHD.
