Global Health Forum Speaker Series


In collaboration with the EGHI Faculty Fellows, EGHI coordinates Global Health Forums that tackle timely global health topics with the goal of emphasizing the multidisciplinary aspect of global health work. 

Each forum typically follows a panel discussion format and includes Emory faculty members and visiting scholars/panelists with expertise in the forum topic. Faculty Fellows from each Emory school are encouraged to participate in the development and implementation of the Global Health Forum Speaker Series throughout the year. This program is one way EGHI connects faculty from across campus around global health issues.

EGHI hosts individual forums that cover a variety of topics from global cancer to climate change to the COVID-19 pandemic. Additionally, the Institute also holds a series of forums that are composed of 4-5 forums around the same topic, one building off of the other.
