RWJF Health & Society Scholars Seminars

The RWJF Health & Society Scholars postdoctoral program at Harvard is anchored by this bi-weekly Thursday seminar series, which provides a forum for transdisciplinary analysis and discussion of major issues in population health. Faculty members from the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, Harvard Kennedy School, Harvard Medical School, the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, and the Graduate School of Design attend the sessions throughout the year. The seminars consist of presentations by faculty and researchers from both within and outside Harvard, and are known for yielding rich dialogue and debate.
