Our Challenging Public Health series invites speakers from outside of public health to reflect on public health, to ask what is being done well and what should be done better. This conversation features Ian Rowe, senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute and co-founder of Vertex Partnership Academies. Mr. Rowe writes extensively about education, housing issues, family formation and adoption. His latest book Agency: The Four Point Plan (F.R.E.E.) for ALL Children to Overcome the Victimhood Narrative and Discover Their Pathway to Power was published in May 2022.
