Discovering Sustainable Pathways from Local to Global
The University of Western Ontario’s Office of Global Health at the Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry is proud to announce their inaugural Global Health Conference
April 27-29, 2012
University of Western Ontario
The Conference aims to advance awareness and knowledge of Global Health issues, locally and abroad by engaging members of the global health community, other academics and professionals across different disciplines to share their innovative ideas and concepts on the dynamics of Global Health and the socio-ecological determinants that impact health worldwide. Sub-themes will include a range of interdisciplinary topics:
· International Health-Ethics & Evaluation
· Marginalized & Healthy Communities
· Advocacy & Activism
About the Conference
The idea to host an international conference began with a vision and belief that through co-operation, discussion, the creation of linkages and partnerships, active components for change to solve global health problems both locally and internationally could be fostered.
This event expects to draw 500 local and international physicians, health professionals, students, health-related organizations and community members. We welcome all who are interested in Global Health to register.
the esteemed keynote speakers and plenary panelists.
