Center for Global Health Spring 2022 Seminar Series

Recognizing that we each work in defined domains, we strove to select cross-cutting topics that underpin our respective projects and thus will serve to unify the Penn global community. Based on an overwhelming request, the unifying topic this spring will be: Building Effective Global Health Partnerships. Please join CGH as we host several scholars as they discuss their own global health partnerships, providing critical insights about successful partnerships in global health.
