Virtual Canadian Conference on Global Health Student Bursaries

As institutional members of both the Canadian Coalition for Global Health Research (CCGHR), and the Canadian Society for International Health (CSIH) we would like to take the opportunity to invite you to participate in the upcoming Canadian Conference for Global Health.  This year, the conference has gone virtual on Monday, October 19, 2020 to Thursday, October 22, 2020. 

 Building on the closing plenary in 2019, the 26th Canadian Conference on Global Health (CCGH) is calling the global health community to action around planetary health— defined as the health of human civilization and the state of the natural systems on which it depends. The societies and the health systems we live in must be both resilient and responsive to the challenges of climate change—the overarching issue of our time. Read the full theme document here. 

 If you are a resident, graduate, or undergraduate student in the College of Medicine, the Division of Social Accountability is reserving funding to assist students in attending this conference. Funding is available for up to 30 students. Acceptance of the funding requires you to participate in a post-conference debrief and knowledge translation event of some kind.
