Global Health Research Day
April 21, 2016
5pm - 7pm
Pembroke Hall 305
172 Meeting Street
Brown University’s Global Health Initiative builds upon model programs that are proven to be highly successful endeavors. One such program is the Interdisciplinary Framework in Global Health Program, which supports global health scholarships for undergraduate students, medical students, residents and fellows, as well as MPH and PhD graduate students. Successful applicants receive up to $3,500 to support global health research, service, and advocacy activities directly linked to Brown University faculty scholarly projects. Another successful GHI program is the Minority Health and Health Disparities International Research Training Program (MHIRT), the goal of which is to provide mentoring experiences for undergraduates, graduate and medical students from underrepresented communities to pursue careers in biomedical sciences, by providing exposure and training in global health programs and global health research.
The purpose of the annual Global Health Research Day is to showcase research done by a wide variety of Brown students working in global health. This includes not only Framework in Global Health Scholars and MHIRT Scholars, but also Global Health Scholarly Concentrators from the medical school, Global Health Track MPH students, and student participating in the Brazil Community Health Fellows Program. An award will be presented to one student for the "best global health poster", and that student will give a short talk on his/her research. Informational student poster presentation will follow the formal program.
Light refreshments will be served. All are welcome to participate and learn about current and on-going global health research being conducted by Brown students and their faculty mentors!
