The History of Global Health

BBS Adrianna Stanley

Today, Adrianna Stanley spoke at GHS’s first Brown Bag Seminar.  Adrianna comes to Geisel as a History of Medicine major at Harvard College.  She gave a presentation on “The History of Global Health” – what happened that led to what is now known as global health, how has the definition of this term changed over the years, and what history can tell us about how this field may evolve in the future.

This is the first of GHS’s Brown Bag Seminars, and we plan to organize one seminar each month to discuss various themes and issues of global health.
