The Voices from the Field webcast leadership discussion series at Harvard School of Public Health invites decision-makers to speak about their experience making policy decisions that affect global health. Highly interactive and candid, this series is produced in The Leadership Studio for a student audience. The events are webcast live in high-definition, and are posted for future viewing. Students learn from experienced leaders about decisions that were effective, decisions that failed, and which decisions, if any, could have been made differently.
