Alumni Week 2021

Public Health Through the Life Course

September 27 – October 2, 2021

The week includes live and on-demand content, including the annual Alumni Association awardee videos, and four live panels featuring faculty, alumni, and international experts covering topics such as how structural and institutional racism, social inequities, public policy, and social determinants of health impact child and adolescent development, affect healthy aging and well-being, and impact racial disparities across the life course. In addition, pre-recorded “Alumni Lightning Talks” will be available during the week and will feature Harvard Chan School graduates discussing how their work and research influences public health efforts across the life course.
