Public Health Roundtable

Public Health Roundtable

The Dean's Roundtable has been rebranded to the Public Health Roundtable! This newsletter features pieces on essential topics that will provide diverse perspectives from expert faculty and public health leaders. We’ll continue to offer insights and information on what's trending within the GPH community including program updates, upcoming events, research in the media and more.

This rebrand maintains Dean Debra Furr-Holden's vision of public health as a roundtable, both multicultural and interdisciplinary. No one sits at the head of the table; it’s intentionally round, with everyone on equal footing. There’s an open seat for you — and there’s room for all. At this table we share the common goal of making a difference, and we each have unique personalities, lived experience and expertise to contribute.
