Event Description:
TRUMPISM:  ANOTHER GLOBAL PUBLI HEALTH THREAT ORIGINATING IN THE USA?
Joel Kettner, CHS

Abstract
Since Donald Trump declared his intention to run for president, Americans, Canadians, and other citizens of the world have watched and listened closely. In addition to Trump himself, media journalists, academics, celebrities, and other politicians and commentators have captured our attention with little deficit.
For some, it has been easy to assess Trump’s behaviours, tweets, speeches, and actions as good or bad, often diagnosing him using DSM-IV categories. Similarly, it has been easy for some to align themselves categorically in support or opposition. Others have been watchfully waiting, unsure what to make of his motives or goals. Some have been less concerned about his personal motives and plans and have focussed more on the effect that his words and actions have had and could have on the health and well-being of people everywhere. Some have labelled this phenomenon or movement as “Trumpism”.
For practitioners of public health and/or students of community health arts and sciences, there is an increasing interest in understanding and responding to this phenomenon as a new pandemic public health threat - similar in some ways to H1N1 pandemic influenza, but, in other ways, perhaps more dangerous.
Professor Kettner, anticipating the protection of his right to academic freedom, plans to present briefly a set of factuals and (alternative) counter-factuals in the hope of stimulating a critical discussion of the nature and potential severity of Trumpism as a global public health threat.
