Join our host Dean Thomas LaVeist each month 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.

As stewards of the first school of public health in the nation, Tulane School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine cultivates independent thinkers, innovative leaders, fierce advocates, and accomplished scholars. We seek out further knowledge and collaboration that will lead to optimal health and well-being for all.

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

What is Lagniappe?

This lecture series is also an opportunity to showcase some New Orleans Lagniappe. (noun, something special; an unexpected gift)

Lagniappe to accompany this lecture series will feature local artists and SPHTM collaborators in the Diboll Gallery each month.

The Lecture Series will begin Fall 2023. This series is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served. Registration for in-person or virtual attendance to each lecture in the series is strongly recommended, and that can be done here.
