Global Health Research Day
Wednesday, February 27, 2013
Pembroke Hall, Room 305
172 Meeting Street
5pm – 7pm
Brown University’s Global Health Initiative builds upon model programs that are proven to be highly successful endeavors. A centerpiece 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 fund research projects at international sites for a minimum of 8 weeks.
The purpose of the Global Health Research Day is to showcase the research done by these Framework Scholars and by Global Health Scholarly Concentrators from the medical school. Students will be presenting posters describing the results of their work. An award will be presented to one student with the "best global health poster", and that student will give a short talk on his/her research.

- Dean Edward Wing, "Best Poster" Presentation
- Student Award Winner, Lecture
