Health Justice Speaker Series

The Global Health Studies program co-sponsors a Health Justice Speaker Series, which brings to campus scholars and academics who can expand and deepen conceptions of what global health is and offer critical and analytical insights from different disciplinary perspectives. Speakers are invited to campus to give public talks open to anyone interested in global health and to participate in discussions with faculty and students on key questions and issues related to their scholarship and health justice more broadly.
