Virtual Alumni Series

Since 2012, the GLC has organized and hosted a one credit course each winter semester that is available to all residential and masters students. The course originally grew out of a discussion between a GLC Advisory Board Member and member of the HMP Faculty as an opportunity to connect alumni and students to share knowledge, experience and expertise. The class meets online weekly for an hour of video conference presentation and discussion with two-way audio and video capability. It has proven to be a wonderful way to connect students with outstanding and diverse alumni to discuss current opportunities and challenges in the field of Health Management and Policy.

The Virtual Alumni Series is on hold for 2021.
