2024 UTMB Global Health Symposium

"Building Bridges in Turbulent Times: Interprofessional Collaboration in Action"

October 19, 2024
7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Health Education Center, Room 1.200
301 11th Street
Galveston, Texas 77555

The UTMB Center for Global & Community Health (CGCH) is dedicated to the training of tomorrow's global health work force to improve health for the people of Texas and around the world. Our mission is to mobilize students to work alongside our international partners to create innovative, multidisciplinary, interprofessional solutions to global health problems.

Each year we host a Symposium to allow trainees and their local and international mentors to showcase the work that they have done in global health and to have a voice in the direction of the global health education agenda. This event also provides an opportunity for faculty, students, and other global health actors to network and develop collaborations.

The Symposium is an opportunity to showcase the work that our students do during their international electives and to continue a campus-wide discussion about how to engage trainees more effectively in international work.   This event creates an opportunity to expand existing partnerships and create new ones by bringing people to campus from around the region, and also our international collaborators from some of our key partner sites.

We are looking forward to seeing you in Galveston in October.
