Each year members of the Global Health Forum at the UACOM-Tucson organize a conference that is student-driven and student-focused to raise awareness for student participation and dialogue. Through the conference, we strive to build a more multidisciplinary approach to spark creativity and exchange around the subject of Global Health.
Additionally this year, we will be accepting abstract/poster in two categories: Original Global Health Research or Global Health Externship Experience. Abstract/poster submission is open until January 18th, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for submission instructions and more information.
Registration is open now until January 27th. We hope to see you there!
