2015: Women's Health

The 2015 Valeriote Goldman Symposium focused on the complex impact of social and economic factors on women's health, and on local and global strategies for change. Sue and Ken's sponsorship also includes funding to support five public health students each year to work at summer internships at non-profit organizations addressing the issues raised in the Symposium.
