WiGH? brings together the voices of prominent scientists, activists, and student leaders from diverse fields to conceptualize interdisciplinary solutions to major problems in scientific research and public health. We also explore the philosophical underbelly of these provocative issues; our guests share stories and anecdotes, and we ask them to reflect on their moral convictions. We try to personalize science and public health through intimate conversation and by asking: “What is Global Health?” Hosted and produced by The Journal of Global Health team at Columbia University.
