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 nationally recognized 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.
