Dean’s Public Talks

Engage with doctor-scientists at the Cumming School of Medicine’s Dean’s Talks. This TED-style public lecture is held biannually, in the fall and spring, and touches on everything from the impact of cannabis to treating breast cancer with precision medicine and wearable technology.

In the upcoming session this fall, Creating the Future of Health, learn about precision medicine — and how research affects daily lives through better healthcare.
