Are you interested or engaged in global health?  The UW-Madison Global Health Institute (GHI) will sponsor its tenth annual symposium to highlight the exciting global health efforts of UW faculty, staff, students, and colleagues from the Madison area and beyond.  You are cordially invited to attend, share your work with the UW community, and learn from others.

We welcome presentations and participants from all disciplines that address global health or improving the conditions necessary for health.  We encourage presentations from the entire campus including the arts, agriculture, business, education, engineering, humanities, health and social sciences.

Christopher Olsen, DVM, PhD, professor of Public Health at the School of Veterinary Medicine and interim vice provost for Teaching and Learning, will deliver the keynote address.

Following the keynote, participants may select from concurrent sessions featuring brief presentations of global health activities.  Poster presenters will then be available for a short session as the reception begins.  Delicious food, good music, and opportunities for networking will round out the evening.

Please submit an abstract if you are interested in sharing a five to seven minute presentation or displaying a poster about your global health work.
