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