The Global Health Evening Roundtables are a forum for discussion among UCLA medical students with global health interests and leaders in the field, with opportunities for global health networking within UCLA and beyond. They are an excellent opportunity for students to meet and interact with experts working in a wide variety of global health disciplines.

The Evening Roundtables, which include a light dinner, are typically held once a month during the UCLA academic year (September through May) from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm.

Previous evening roundtables have included conversations with the following distinguished guests:

  • Marchelle Sellars of Mending Kids International discusses sustainable pediatric surgery in global health
  • Porter DeLaney of Kyle House Group discusses global health advocacy
  • David Wilson, Director of HIV/AIDS research at the World Bank, discusses HIV/AIDS and other global health priorities at the World Bank
  • Maneesh Batra of the University of Washington School of Medicine discusses global health ethics
  • Lara Stemple of the UCLA School of Law discusses global health and human rights
