Each weekly session will involve a short presentation (10 minutes) to define the topic, followed by panel comments (5 minutes) from speakers representing the perspectives of health, law, government/policy, and community. Sessions will end with 30 minutes of facilitated discussion with the audience. Each session will be followed by an informal reception to encourage networking between graduate students, faculty, panelists, and community members.
