NEW THIS YEAR: The Committee on the Advancement of Women Faculty (formerly Committee on the Concerns of Women Faculty, CCWF) has recently put forward a proposal to the Dean’s office to support a new lecture series aimed at highlighting the important contributions of women leaders in Public Health. The HSPH Centennial Lecture Series: Women Leaders in Public Health will serve as an inspiring vehicle for academic enrichment at the School, particularly for our many women students, post-doctoral fellows, and faculty.
