EDGS co-sponsors Global Health Interdisciplinary Symposium

Through an EDGS Faculty Conference grant to Prof. Juliet Sorensen, EDGS is co-sponsoring a 2-day symposium entitled: “Global Health Then and Now, Equality, Development and Globalization.” It will occur on Nov. 19-20th at the Northwestern Chicago campus. More information can be found on the Northwestern Medicine website.

Jeffrey D. Sachs will be the symposium’s keynote speaker.

The central goal of this two-day symposium is to catalyze the exchange and cross pollination of ideas and research on the interdisciplinary factors, impediments, and solutions to the advancement of global health. We believe that where multiple perspectives come together around some of the world’s largest problems, we will find the greatest potential for impactful global health solutions.
