Dean’s Distinguished Lecture Series


These forums began in 2001 with the Future of Public Health Symposium Series, which was sponsored by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. Over the years, this series has brought experts from the U.S. and other nations to HSPH to share their views on the major challenges and opportunities in their fields and disciplines.
