Global Health Symposium 2018

25/04/2018

Riddel Hall

The Global Health Symposium 2018 will take place over the 26-27 April, at Riddel Hall, Queen’s University Belfast.

The event is being developed by the Centre for Public Health, the Centre of Excellence for Public Health, the School of Pharmacy, and others within the School of Medicine and Biosciences.

Our objective is that this event will showcase the increasing amount of global health research coming out of QUB. We have researchers and students attending the conference from a number of international, UK and Irish universities, and we’re hoping the conference will also be useful for sharing ideas and building future research partnerships. With Queen’s hosting this event, we aim to position the University as a leading institution in the UK for this type of research.

The first day of our conference is dedicated to showcasing the work of students and early-career researchers. On the first day we also have keynote talks from high profile guest speakers from Medicins Sans Frontieres (MSF) and from Students for Global Health, European Health Parliament. The second day of our conference focuses on m-health and global health, with internationally renowned speakers and experts within their field. The event will be introduced by the Acting Vice-Chancellor James McElnay, and Claire Hanna, MLA for South Belfast.
