    Known for his visionary contributions to health research, education, administration, and policy, C. David Naylor will share his expertise with the UM community November 14-16, when the president emeritus of the University of Toronto, founding director of the renowned Institute for Clinical Evaluative Sciences, and 2016 inductee into the Canadian Medical Hall of Fame becomes the U’s newest visiting talent.

    Welcomed to UM as a Distinguished Presidential Scholar, the physician-scientist says he is intrigued by Miami’s “diversity, potential, and momentum,” which reminds him of Toronto’s. He describes both places as among the world’s most multicultural cities.

    “I love the energy of both cities and firmly believe that diversity of disciplines, ideas, and backgrounds has very positive effects on learning and research,” he said, adding “there are lots of universities that have been around a long time and have more or less topped out—the University of Miami is very much a growing academic force with great upside.”

    Recognized for his “relentless belief” that the world can be a better place, Naylor will share his wealth of knowledge as a physician-scientist, clinician, researcher, and educator—the consummate public health care pioneer—at four speaking engagements, two each on the Coral Gables and Miller School campuses.

    His topics: “Paradise Lost: Canada’s Health Care Systems at a Crossroads” (a colloquium); “Endemic Mismeasurement: Heretical Musings on Health, Illness, and Evidence; “Universal Health Care: Canada and the U.S. Revisited; and “What Happens When Science Is Shortchanged?” View the schedule and RSVP for one or more sessions.
