Life during a Pandemic: how academia responds

The Northern Pacific Global Health (NPGH) Fellowship Program, in coordination with our sister Global Health Fellows & Scholars Consortia, organized weekly Zoom discussions related to the COVID-19 pandemic. Calls were moderated by Dr. Joe Zunt (University of Washington). We hope these calls will provide the Fogarty Global Health Fellows & Scholars community an opportunity to connect and learn from each other during this global crisis.


There are currently no upcoming calls scheduled. Feel free to email if you would like to suggest topics/speakers for our series!
