Global Health Research Day
Academic Year 2014-2015
February 9, 2015
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 funding for research projects at international sites for a minimum of 8 weeks. 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 these Framework Scholars and MHIRT Scholars, as well as by Global Health Scholarly Concentrators from the medical school and school of public health. Students will present posters describing the results of their work. An award will be presented to a student for the "best global health poster", and that student will give a short talk on his/her research.
Informational poster presentation to follow.
Light refreshments will be served. All are welcome to participate and learn about current and on-going global health research being conducted by Brown’s Framework Scholars, MHIRT Scholars and Scholarly Concentrators!
