2017 Symposium Call for Abstracts

Members of the UW-Madison and extended global health community are invited to submit abstracts for oral and poster presentations at the 2017 Global Health Symposium.

The Global Health Institute (GHI) is pleased to announce that Jennie Ward-Robinson, president and CEO of the Pan-American Health Organization (PAHO), will be the keynote speaker for the 2017 Global Health Symposium.

The symposium will be from 4:30 to 9 p.m. Tuesday, April 4, 2017, in the Health Sciences Learning Center.

The annual event is an opportunity for faculty, staff and students and partners from all disciplines to connect with each other and share their work with the global health community. Presentations are welcome from across campus—from arts, agriculture and business, to education, engineering and humanities, to all of the health sciences and beyond.

Call for abstracts

The call is open to members and partners of the UW-Madison community who are addressing global health and disease. From basic research to education to applied projects in the field, the symposium hopes to showcase the full spectrum of UW-Madison global health activity. We encourage and welcome presentations from all disciplines—from arts, agriculture, and business, to education, engineering, and humanities, to all of the health sciences and more. 

Following the keynote address, selected oral presenters will deliver their work in 15-minute (including time for questions), concurrent sessions. Posters will be available for viewing all evening, and a poster session follows the presentations. Hors d’oeuvres will be served during the networking reception that closes the evening.
