Friday Luncheon Seminars

The Harvard Pop Center and the Program on the Global Demography of Aging are pleased to sponsor a Friday Luncheon Seminar series focused on salient issues in population health, demography, and economics. These informal gatherings serve as opportunities for researchers to garner important feedback from others working in similar areas.

We offer a mix of presentations – from standard research dissemination from Pop Center members to work-in-progress sessions by junior scholars to research methodology seminars by our staff.

Sessions are scheduled on Fridays from 12:30 – 1:30 at the Harvard Center for Population and Development Studies, 9 Bow Street, Cambridge, unless otherwise noted. Lunch is provided.

All faculty and students are invited to attend. If you would like to present at a Friday lunch session, please contact Kayla Small at ksmall@hsph.harvard.edu
