Last week, the Department of International Health welcomed its seventh graduate cohort to the Hilltop!  As part of orientation, new students were treated to a tour of the World Bank in Washington, DC.  Drs. Bernhard Liese, Eva Jarawan, and Vincent Turbat — World Bank veterans, each — shared countless stories about working for the institution in Washington and around the globe.

The students saw several parts of the main building, including the atrium, board rooms, and world-famous cafeteria!  Later in the afternoon, the cohort attended its first course: Epidemiologic Methods. It was a great way to kickstart the Fall semester — students learned about the role of international institutions in health and development.
