Capacity Building for Global Health: Responding to Challenges and Opportunities
SPH All-School Symposium
October 8, 2012
More Information: http://www.sph.umich.edu/symposium/2012/
The University of Michigan School of Public Health hosts the biennial symposium focusing on a cross-cutting public health problem as part of the Breadth, Integration and Capstone (BIC) element of the curriculum. The intent of the symposium is to provide an opportunity to examine a public health issue from the multiple disciplinary perspectives of our field.
This year’s symposium, “Capacity Building for Global Health: Responding to Challenges and Opportunities,” will examine the transdisciplinary methods required to address complex development challenges, explore the co-equal, transparent partnerships that build and support sustainability in local institutions, and consider evidence-based solutions which are effective, affordable, and scalable. Prominent speakers from many regions throughout the world, the U.S., and the state of Michigan will also be featured.
Registration is required, particularly for luncheon/afternoon sessions at SPH. See https://www.sph.umich.edu/scr/symposium/registration.cfm
