The Center for Infectious Diseases and the Institute for Global Health and Infectious Diseases co-sponsor a weekly conference series featuring distinguished clinicians and scientists from UNC, local universities and other national and international institutions. The topics are varied and appeal to not only infectious disease specialists, but also professionals in epidemiology, public health, microbiology, biostatistics and other global health-related disciplines.
Dr. Meier’s interdisciplinary research—at the intersection of international law, public policy, and global health—examines the harmful effects of globalization on individual health status and national health systems. Advancing rights-based frameworks for public health, he has written and presented extensively on the development and evolution of human rights in national and global health governance – serving as a consultant to international organizations, national governments, and nongovernmental organizations.
