More on the VCU Global Health Symposium

VCU Global Health Symposium speakers
More on the recent First Annual VCU Global Health Symposium can be found on the university's global education website here.

The meeting took place on Saturday, April 27th, and brought together students, residents and faculty from across the university. One of the key goals of the meeting was to provide a platform for sharing ideas, networking and developing the framework for future collaboration. The meeting featured short talks focused on research at both the community and international levels, and a poster session.

Our group (the VCU Global Health and Health Disparities Program, or GH2DP) provides both medical care and public health interventions to approximately 2,000 people living across 17 villages in rural Honduras. As a result of the VCU Global Health Symposium we have new contacts and new ideas including improving mental health services in the region as well as clean water infrastructure.
