As part of a strategic plan to strengthen the School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine’s academic offerings, effective July 1st, 2021, the former Department of Global Community Health and Behavioral Sciences (GCHB) has been divided into two departments to better serve students and better align the teaching faculty.

The two new departments are the Department of International Health and Sustainable Development (IHSD) and the Department of Social, Behavioral, and Population Sciences (SBPS). An audience Q&A will follow the panel. This event is open to the public and all SPHTM alumni, students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to attend.
