The Global Health Metrics and Evaluation Seminar features senior researchers who present current work on pertinent global health issues. Seminars are intended to highlight the research being done by the broader global health community, and provide an opportunity for students to engage in a dialogue about the methods, results, and implications of the research. In addition, this seminar series exposes students to the broad array of issues in completing research projects and the magnitude of work involved in producing salient results. Students are expected to attend all seminar sessions and actively participate in the discussions. When possible, students will meet with the seminar presenter after the seminar to further discuss the implications of their research and ask more detailed questions on the analytical methods and study design.
