UC Global Health Day 2018: Committing to a Healthier World

This system-wide conference on global health, now in its sixth year, showcases the outstanding research, training and outreach taking place across the University of California and is an amazing opportunity for UC students, fellows, faculty, staff and visiting scholars to gather to share their work.

Interdisciplinary by nature and collaborative in spirit, global health efforts encompass a range of academic topics – from psychology to engineering to sustainability and economics, scholars are committed to improving the health of humans, animals and ecosystems around the globe. This year’s theme, Committing to a Healthier World, builds on the work of global health practitioners from UC and beyond by bringing together partners, leaders and young career professionals for a day of sharing and discussion.

We are now accepting submissions of abstracts for poster presentation and breakout sessions for UC Global Health Day

Topics may range from basic to translational sciences, technology to social entrepreneurship, women’s health to global health diplomacy or policy. We are seeking a broad range of topics to feature the rich diversity of work being done in global health across different disciplines.
