Global Health Conference – September 23, 2017

  • The Global Health Conference is dedicated to raising awareness about pressing global health issues. This will be a forum to discuss and analyze practices and policies that move us towards gender and health equity. This half-day conference is an opportunity for researchers, students, and community members involved in global health to network and discuss exciting research, programs, and projects in the field. We hope to inspire participants to work collaboratively toward promoting equity in gender both locally and globally.

The conference will be held on the University of Saskatchewan Campus in the Health Sciences E Wing.
