Global Health Symposium / Submit your abstracts for oral and poster presentations
The 2019 Global Health Symposium (http://ghs.qub.ac.uk) will take place over two days, 2-3 May 2019, in the Queen’s Film Theatre, Queen's University Belfast.
This year’s theme ‘Changing communities, changing lives: novel approaches to funding and delivering global health programs’ embodies our commitment to pushing the boundaries of global health. The 2019 Symposium will not only provide space for discussion and networking among researchers and practitioners working within traditional health disciplines, but will also explore creative, novel, and multidisciplinary ways to impact global health. Our new location this year, of the Queen’s Film Theatre, provides an excellent space to exhibit, share, and discuss these themes.
Building on the success of the Global Health Symposium in previous years, we remain committed to making this event a supportive and encouraging environment for postgraduate and postdoctoral researchers to present their research and to network with others across a wide range of academic disciplines.
Early-career researchers and students are invited to submit an abstract for oral and poster presentation. Online abstract submission is quick and easy, and is NOW OPEN. Full details, including an abstract template for download, are available on the GHS webpage: http://ghs.qub.ac.uk/abstracts.html. Please submit abstracts by Friday 15th March 2019 (extended deadline). We particularly encourage submissions from researchers working outside of traditional public and global health disciplines.
Keeping with our theme of novel and creative approaches to global health, we are also asking for submissions to our Photography Exhibition and Competition, the winners of which will be announced during the Symposium. Full details on the competition and how to submit your images are on our webpage: http://ghs.qub.ac.uk/photos.html
