Join us for our first Fall speaker series hosted by the GeoHealth Network. The speaker series will take place on Thursday October 17th from 2pm-4pm at the Dalla Lana School of Public Health, Room HS574. During this meeting we will introduce our executive planning team and kick off our speaker series with a presentation from Professor Dr. Dionne Gesink, hear from fellow graduate students undertaking research in the intersection of health and geography, and hear from you, our network members, to understand what brings you to the group and what you hope to learn during the 2019/2020 academic year.

Participation is FREE. Snacks and refreshments will be provided. 

Please email us with any accessibility concerns or requests at info@geohealthnetwork.com. It is important to us that everyone feels they can meaningfully participate in this group, and we will make everyone accommodation possible to assist with that goal.

Happy Mapping,
