CCGHR 2020 Abstract & Poster Call
6th Annual CCGHR Student-Led Global Health Forum (Date: March 7th, 2020, Location: University of Waterloo) - Global Health in Context: Unpacking the Political, Economic, Environmental, and Social

How can we define global health? How do political ideologies, changing environments, and social norms all intersect to affect our health? And what does placing health in context mean? Our goal for the 2020 CCGHR Student Forum is to critically engage with these questions, bringing into focus these seemingly invisible influential factors on our health and well-being.

The 2020 CCGHR Student Forum Planning Committee is extending an open invitation for the submission of any project or piece related to global health. This is an open opportunity for undergraduate and graduate students to showcase their ideas, school projects, innovative projects, creative talents, or health promotion pieces. This opportunity allows undergraduate students who may not have a research project to gain experience in presenting at a professional conferences and gain feedback on their presentation or topic of choice. We wish to provide students with practical learning experiences and a glimpse into innovative and interdisciplinary approaches to real-world problems.

Applicants are welcome to submit summaries for their health-related project to be presented through a POSTER SHOWCASE. We encourage participation from students of all undergraduate years, as this is an opportunity to highlight a health challenge or solution that may not be regularly discussed. Presentations will be non-competitive and presenters will be given the opportunity to gain feedback on their topic and presentation, while sharing their work with students and other attendees.

Come out to present your work and network with our speakers and facilitators such as:
