About Maynard Clark
Maynard Clark is a very "Google-able" FT graduate student in Emmanuel College's Research Administration program.
Many FXB residents recall when his time in FXB was spent:
(1) half in HMS in the Department of Global Health and Social Medicine, as Faculty Assistant for Professor Leon Eisenberg, MD, Presley Professor of Social Medicine and Child Psychiatry Emeritus, where he had been for about a decade (since the late '90s)
(2) half in HSPH in the Department of Global Health and Population, as Faculty Assistant for Professor Dan Wikler, PhD, Saltonstall Professor of Population Ethics, and as Program Manager for the annual summer intensive course (2nd week of June), "Ethical Issues in Global Health Research" [http://www.HSPH.Harvard.edu/bioethics/]. Check out the course and the SciDev.net news feed on the EIGHR website.
After Dr. Leon Eisenberg passed on 15 September 2010, Maynard archived LE's 62+ years of published writings, now stored electronically in the GHSM Department AND in Countway.
In addition, he's interested in animal ethics and the search for non-animal replacements for the human use of animals in everyday life, as in science. That was to have been a theme in Maynard's research administration thesis, and he spent over 3 years working out the thesis and research designs, but another implementation interest became the thesis topic - urban density and residential building conditions.
He's done considerable community organizing over the decades, for years hosted a local talking heads TV program, blogs aggressively, and speaks in some community circles around Boston.
Outside Harvard, he has visibility and recognition in vegetarian community organizing, for which he was nominated and accepted several decades ago into Marquis' Who's Who. He founded the Boston Vegetarian Society in the mid-Eighties and brought together the teams to develop the first Boston Vegetarian Food Fair, now run successfully by BVS at a site near the LMA at the Reggie Lewis Track and Athletic Center in Roxbury. He helps to maintain a vegetarian think tank, the Vegetarian Resource Center, which was begun around 1993. https://www.linkedin.com/groups/Vegetarian-Resource-Center-48227/about.

We operate in a traditional manner by supporting our partners’ work with targeted grants. But we can also invest in for-profit endeavors, such as efforts by companies to develop breakthrough renewable energy technologies. Our structure also allows us to lobby for policies that support our philanthropic goals. Additionally, we can tap Google’s innovative technology and, most importantly, its inspired workforce.

Harvard School of Public Health, Department of Global Health and Population - (HSPH, GHP)
Website: http://www.hsph.harvard.edu/global-health-and-population/ Type: Academic Institution Country: United States About: The twenty-first century has arrived with complex changes in demographic patterns, disease burdens, our environments and health policies. These changes are affecting all societies, rich and poor, developed and developing. The department brings together disciplinary expertise in many areas to leverage different perspectives and approaches to global health issues. Our aim is to achieve a deeper understanding of, and make significant contributions to, the “research-policy-implementation” cycle for the multifaceted fields of global health and population. The department’s approach combines the analysis of population and health using quantitative and qualitative methods, the investigation of policies that affect general and reproductive health, and a concern with the politics, ecology and ethics of health and development. Our faculty members are engaged in cutting-edge research in such areas as health metrics, experimental economics/randomized trials, social and economic development, health policy, longitudinal aging studies, health systems, women and children’s health, infectious and chronic diseases, health equity, human rights and humanitarian relief – particularly in the context of developing countries. Our students are also diverse in their backgrounds and life experiences. The department offers a rigorous doctoral program focusing in economics, population and reproductive health and health systems. We also offer a 2-year master of science program (SM2) in addition to the Master of Public Health program (MPH). All three degree programs are dedicated to preparing the next generation of leaders and academics in the fields of health and population policy to advance global health and reduce the burden of disease, especially in the world’s most vulnerable populations. Our alumni have taken positions of leadership in top universities (including Harvard, Johns Hopkins and Boston University) as well as in a broad range of public health institutions (including the World Bank, USAID, Gates Foundation, ministries of health and research institutes).
