Dean’s Leaders & Lagniappe Lecture Series

Join our host Dean Thomas LaVeist each month this fall as he speaks with visiting deans from schools of public health from around the nation in a lecture series held at the Tulane University School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine in downtown New Orleans, Louisiana.

The Dean’s Leaders & Lagniappe Lecture Series is a chance to expand our learning and networks, to hear from the distinguished deans from schools of public health from around the nation, and to further broaden our definition of public health.

Through this lecture series, we hope to introduce our audience to the innovations, ideas, and leadership from outside our walls as well.
