“I’ve only been able to “attend” the webcast of these lectures. Yet, every year the UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health Minority Health Conference webcast and its associated website have been among the most informative and useful events/resources I access during the year.” (Alice Furumoto-Dawson, Jan 2006)

“The current topic is outstanding, as were the previous three broadcasts I attended. The annual Minority Health Conference is really a phenomenal undertaking, especially coming from an institution that has epitomized excellence in the teaching and practice of epidemiology in the US and beyond.” (Anbesaw Selassie, Feb 2008)
