Centennial Friday Events Photo Gallery

Friday, November 9, 2012 kicked off a weekend of events celebrating Tulane University's School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine's founding in 1912.

The day's events were both scientific and social and offered current SPHTM students the chance to network and mingle with alumni, staff, faculty, and the guest speakers at events like department open houses, a networking roundtable luncheon, and a student poster presentation.
