Seminars and Events

Friday Forums in Cardiovascular Epidemiology

Approximately once each month, the Program will host a Forum in Cardiovascular Epidemiology.  These meetings are open and interactive platforms for discussions in cardiovascular epidemiology among PIs from various institutions.

Each Forum will include a 30-minute talk by a PI on their most current research, followed by 30 minutes of interactive discussion.  Forums will include a tasting of wines and dark chocolates (with a brief blinded tasting).

To maintain reasonable group size and confidentiality, the Friday Forums are open only to members of the Program and their guests.  Others interested in attending a Friday Forum please contact the Program.

The Friday Forums in Cardiovascular Epidemiology are held from 4:00-5:30 pm, in Kresge Room 110 at the Harvard School of Public Health, 677 Huntington Ave, Boston, MA 02115.

If you would like to see information on topics from previous academic years, please visit the Past Friday Forums page.
