Dr. Julio Frenk
President of the University of Miami, Chair of the Advisory Board of the Harvard Ministerial Leadership Program and the former Secretary of Health of Mexico
Dr. Julio Frenk is President of the University of Miami. Previously, he was the Dean of the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, where he conceived and spearheaded the establishment of the Ministerial Leadership in Health (MLIH) Program. Dr. Frenk’s experience as Minister of Health of Mexico helped guide the focus of the program, which assists ministers in defining the legacy they want to build during their tenure, and the political and practical realities to achieving their ambitions, as well as providing a cohort of peers they can engage with. Dr. Frenk continues to serve as Chair of the MLIH Advisory Board.
"Jamie Cooper's support and involvement were essential to the success of Harvard's Ministerial Leadership in Health program during its initial years, and I am greatly looking forward to working with her to develop it further with the advice and support of her foundation, Big Win Philanthropy. The program is all about giving serving ministers the space and support to envisage and then deliver 'big win' legacies for their countries."
