Global Health Rounds
Global Health rounds are held every second Monday starting October 15 through April at noon to 12:55 pm in room 2-150 ECHA (location can vary each year). They are not scheduled on statutory holidays. Everyone is welcome to attend the live presentation.
The overall theme of rounds is health of the underprivileged, regardless of location, and addressing disparities. The subject matter ranges from consideration of diseases (ex. malaria or HIV) to the concern about specific populations (e.g., children, mothers or marginalized communities like Aboriginal peoples). The audience is encouraged to propose topics for future rounds.
Faculty members and students/residents undertaking global health research or programs, or research in related topics, will often make presentations. They have presented subjects as diverse as the impact of environmental change on sustainable health and the challenge of poverty in reaching the Millennium Development goals. Students of all the Health Sciences Faculties undertaking global health electives or field work are also encouraged to present their work.
