Michelle Floris-Moore, Heidi Swygard, Daniel Westreich, and David Wohl address the audience during a Friday Morning Conference at UNC.

The Institute partners with the University’s Division of Infectious Diseases and the Center for AIDS Research on a weekly conference series featuring distinguished clinicians and scientists from UNC, local universities, and other national and international institutions. The topics are varied and appeal to professionals in infectious disease, epidemiology, public health, microbiology, biostatistics and other global health-related disciplines.

The conference takes place each Friday, September through May, from 8:30-9:30 a.m. For the fall 2020 semester, we’ll be offering the conference online via Zoom. An email with Zoom link is sent out weekly; sign up (at left) for email notices if you haven’t already.

To suggest a speaker, contact conference coordinator Dr. Arlene Seña-Soberano or Kathy James.
