Centennial Women Leaders in Public Health Lecture Series


CWLPH Web Banner (2)

Harvard School of Public Health has established a new lecture series beginning during the School’s Centennial year, 2013-2014. The series aims to highlight the important leadership contributions of women in public health, and serves as an inspiring vehicle for academic enrichment at HSPH, particularly for the many women in our community of students, post-doctoral fellows, researchers, and faculty. The series is sponsored by the Committee for the Advancement of Women Faculty (CAWF), the Harvard University Office of the Provost, and the Office of the Dean.
