To Graduate Students,
The Center for Global Health is hosting a dinner on Wednesday 27 September, 6-8PM to advance the interests of graduate students who are actively seeking global health engagement and scholarship. The dinner will focus on integrating global health into your research interests, offering opportunties to connect directly with faculty and to advance knowledge of interdisciplinary resources at UVa and globally.
In Brazil, collaborations between the University of Ceara and the University of Virginia foster an environment for scientists to train and research topics relevant to low resource areas.
International experience and particularly, experience centered around global health, is evocative and transformative. The Center for Global Health invites students and faculty to share their photographs and stories which represent the rich possibilities of engagement: global health collaboration, innovations and solutions. CGH will support the 2017 Global Health Photography Contest with a reception on Wednesday, October 25th during Global Week at UVA.
This two day conference highlighted how communities can develop community-based, culturally-competent care to address the issues of substance use and related epidemics such as HIV, Hepatitis C, and neonatal abstinence syndrome. The conference emphasized the impact of law, health policy, politics, and stigma on the social determinants of the opioid epidemic and its outcomes, especially as they relate to vulnerable populations.
