SPPH Grand Rounds

This monthly seminar series running during the academic year will involve both faculty and guest speakers, who will share new and innovative research, and current issues and trends in population and public health.

Held on Fridays from 9:00 am to 10:00 am in Michael Smith Laboratories Room 102, the Rounds will finish with a question and answer session. Questions tweeted using the hashtag #SPPHRounds will be selected by the Faculty Coordinator to put to the speaker.

All faculty and students are strongly encouraged to attend as part of the ongoing conversation about current issues in Population and Public Health.
