  • Evaluating the Maternal and Newborn Health Grand Challenge – Saving Lives at Birth, November 10, 2020, 12:00 – 1:00 pm. Join the Duke Global Health Institute as we discuss how our multidisciplinary team was able to evaluate the Saving Lives at Birth (SL@B) program, a portfolio of 116 unique maternal and newborn health innovations. We will share the multi-method research design — including qualitative, quantitative, and cost-effectiveness analyses — and high level findings. And we will discuss the opportunities and challenges of evaluating early stage innovations. This webinar is for faculty, staff, students and anyone at Duke who is interested in evaluating the impact of portfolio level innovation programs and maternal and newborn health in low-resource settings. 
  • Facing Hard Numbers and Harder Conversations: Disparities in Healthcare Access for the LGBTQ+ Community, November 18, 2020, 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm. Join the Center for Global Women’s Health Technologies (GWHT) as we spend this school year having monthly conversation around Systemic Racism, Racial and Sexual Disparities in Women’s Health. This series features the voices of Duke University students and staff and covers everything from personal experience stories to data-driven explorations of inequities in care. The third panel in this series will feature three guest panelists: Simone (Duke University undergrad student), Hunter (Program Coordinator at The LGBT Center of Durham), and Dr. Dane Whicker, (Director of Gender and Sexual Diversity Initiatives in the Office of Diversity and Inclusion for Duke School of Medicine).
