Global Health Security Seminars

The 2023-2024 Global Health Security Seminar Series will bring together faculty, postdoctoral researchers, students, and colleagues to present works in progress, share areas of research, and engage in dialogue with fellow researchers working on public health at Georgetown University. The events are co-sponsored by the Center for Global Health Science and Security, the School of Health’s Department of Health Management and Policy, and the Global Health Institute at Georgetown University and occur on Mondays from 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. EDT.

Launched in September 2017, the seminar series has previously addressed critical issues in global health by promoting greater dialogue regarding pandemic preparedness across Georgetown University and the wider Washington, DC, community as well as by highlighting the work of faculty and researchers at the university, with a focus on public health emergencies.
