Annual Events

The Center for Global Health's annual symposium is the largest event supported by the Center. It is held each fall and is designed to bring together students and faculty from all disciplines who are seeking innovative approaches to global health. Each year we feature a prominent keynote speaker with a unique perspective on global health. This event is the Center's best opportunity to celebrate student accomplishments, experience, and learning as well as to advance opportunities for student-faculty collaboration in research.

The UVa Global Health Case Competition, launched in 2013, offers a unique opportunity for graduate and undergraduate students from diverse schools and disciplines to tackle some of the most intransigent, enduring global health issues. The case, also written by students, requires interdisciplinary approaches that may involve issues as varied as health care policy, infectious disease, public health feasibility and evaluation, public-private partnerships, faith and cultural understanding, and international law to develop innovative solutions for current, critical global health issues. Students will have the chance to develop innovation solutions for these problems as part of a multidisciplinary team of 4-6 students and present recommendation to a panel of judges. In addition to the obvious educational benefits and networking opportunities, students also compete for the chance to compete at the International Global Health Case Competition in Atlanta.

Global Health Month is designed to promote engagement, connections, and interest in global health research and scholarship. This dinner series, focused on interdisciplinary global health opportunities and critical areas of engagement with faculty leaders and peers, culminates with the Annual CGH Research Symposium.
