The 5th Annual GlobeMed Global Health Summit opens this Thursday!

GlobeMed is hosting its fifth annual Global Health Summit! The theme of this year’s Summit is A Call to Action: Leveraging History to Build a Movement. Join us for keynote addresses by Dr. Joseph Amon and Dr. Joia Mukherjee to learn and discuss how students can have a role in the movement for global health equity (more information about the keynotes below). Admission is free!

We are also extending guest passes for our workshops to NU students. All workshops take place on Friday at the Hotel Orrington, and will cover the topics Global Health at the Grassroots, Historical Lessons, and Advocating for Justice.

Tickets for the keynotes and workshops are free of charge and can be reserved at http://www.globemedsummit.org/ticketing. We hope to see you there!
