Grand Rounds

The Institute for Global Health (IGHS) Grand Rounds showcases the linkage between education and research by bringing together students and researchers to discuss how different sciences can help make progress on important global health problems.

IGHS Executive Director Jaime Sepulveda, MD, DSc, MPH, hosts the monthly, hour-long programs, which feature a 30-minute talk by the guest speaker followed by questions from Sepulveda, an IGHS master’s student and audience members. A reception follows each program.
