Milton J. Rosenau Lectures

The Rosenau Lectures celebrate the centennial of the landmark Rosenau paper on public health training published in the Journal of the American Medical Association in March 1915. This celebration of public health’s past naturally leads to consideration of the field’s future, and these lectures have been developed as a companion to the School’s Research Strategy Review (RSR). The RSR is a comprehensive examination of the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health’s research enterprise and will identify areas most likely to impact and define the future of public health research.
