External Network Core


The proximity between CPHA and the Carolina Population Center at the University of North Carolina makes it possible for students and scholars to participate in cross-institutional seminars and conferences. Duke and UNC graduate and postdoctoral students also enroll in courses and workshops across both campuses.

Headed by Jenny Tung, the External Network Core develops and expands the CPHA’s Aging research and training by tapping into this dynamic partnership.

The External Network Core encourages the ongoing, intellectual dialogue at the inter-institutional Social and Biological Determinants of Health Working Group, promotes the quality research presented at the annual Demography Daze Seminars and stimulates collaborative projects between the two universities.
