Philadelphia — The popular Center for Integrative Global Oral Health (CIGOH) Lecture Series has been reframed as a dialogue with prominent scholars in the realm of global health. This new CE series, titled “Roots of Wisdom,” will bring together influential global leaders to answer and discuss thought-provoking questions and share their population and public health experience and knowledge.

The new interview series launched with a conversation with Sir Michael G. Marmot, MBBS, MPH, PhD, FRCP, FFPHM, FMedSci, FBA, Director of the Institute of Health Equity and Professor of Epidemiology at University College London. This inaugural conversation with Professor Marmot’s can be viewed online by visiting the School’s Dental Education Portal. The series will occur on a monthly basis.

Established in 2021, CIGOH seeks to find creative solutions to address unmet oral health needs on a global scale by providing world class education, promoting oral literacy, training dental and graduate students in advocacy for better healthcare and social determinants of health, and providing critical infrastructure to convene thought leaders to discuss, develop, and test effective inventions to improve outcomes for issues of prevention, equity, and access to affordable care.
