Trent Semans Center for Health Education - Great Hall

Duke is home to leading schools of medicine and engineering, as well as strong programs in physical, social and mathematical sciences that are of significant importance to addressing grand challenges in medicine and engineering. How can we combine our strengths to develop new therapies and devices, speed translation into clinical practice, create innovative educational opportunities for students, and improve patient care? Join Pratt and SoM leaders to discuss plans for a joint initiative to enhance existing ties and encourage new collaborations among faculty from the School of Medicine and Pratt School of Engineering as well as other schools and initiatives. Your ideas and insights are welcome. Refreshments will be served. No RSVP necessary. --- Hosted by Nancy C.
