MHIRT Scholar Research Symposium

Interested in learning more about the Minority Health International Research Training Program and the students' international research projects?

Join us drinks & snacks anytime between 1:30-3pm on Friday, August 2, 2019 at the Corner Building at UVA to learn about a wide variety of topics and what it's like living and conducting research in Ecuador, South Africa, and Thailand.

The UVa MHIRT Program is an international research training program for undergraduate minority students that provides research training to selected students from across the United States. By extending the analysis of global rural health disparities using an interdisciplinary approach to appreciate more completely the complexity of global health and disease, this highly competitive program offers under-represented minority students training and professional development experience, which facilitates more desirable applications to graduate training and professional schools.

The scholar symposium will take place in the Vice President for Research (formerly OpenGrounds) collaborative space which is located next to the Center for Global Health in the Corner Building on UVA's Historic Corner area. We're located just before the train bridge, next to the old Medical School building and across from the White Spot.
