The 14th annual Global Health Symposium at the University of Wisconsin-Madison will bring colleagues together from across disciplines and provide a forum for UW-affiliated faculty, staff, students and friends to present their work to improve health for humans, all life and the planet.
Sponsored by the UW-Madison Global Health Institute, the symposium is an opportunity for the campus-wide community to come together and celebrate and learn from each other. The first Global Health Symposium was organized in 2004 to connect students, faculty and staff who were participating in global health work. The event, like the Institute, has grown from the health sciences to include participants from across campus, recognizing that the determinants of health and disease are interlinked and need solutions from across disciplines.
The evening includes a keynote presentation, concurrent oral presentations and a poster session on global health projects and a closing panel discussion on a current hot topic in global health. The presentations cover the gamut of health challenges from reducing infant mortality to improving transportation.
The symposium is free and open to all.
