Please join us for a joint MHS/Vanderbilt and GHSM/Kings College London coffee hour for students!

Each month, we will gather for an informal virtual coffee hour to get to know one another and to speak about a cutting-edge topic with a featured guest. Come meet professionals at different stages of their careers, learn about their work, and ask them questions about how to navigate the complex terrain of making a living doing what one is passionate about.


Please see the list below for the coffee hour schedule for the 2021-2022 academic year:

  • September 30: Nutrition and food security with Saul Morris, PhD, Epidemiologist and Director of Programme Services, Gain Health
