UCSF Global Health Journal Club
Held on the last Wednesday of every month at the new Mission Bay Global Health Building, 550 16th Street. This journal club provides an opportunity to critically evaluate and discuss journal articles relevant to global health. In as rapidly expanding field as global health, it's particularly important to keep up with the literature and to read broadly across various sub-disciplines. We examine innovative methodologies for monitoring and evaluation, implementation science, among other topics. UCSF affiliated faculty, interns, fellows, staff, and students are welcome to attend or co-facilitate a meeting. Joelle Brown and Chongyi Wei are managing the group. Contact the moderator to join
