Monthly Global Health Forum
Our monthly Global Health Forum discusses and disseminates findings on current research and innovations on relevant global health topics.
Previously, we convened monthly Forums on Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs), which provided an opportunity for interdisciplinary discussions of NCDs in low-and-middle-income countries. Seeing the interest by researchers, students and staff in expanding these discussions to include a number of other global health concerns, we have expanded the scope of these discussions into our newly launched Global Health Forum.
Our monthly Global Health Forums will provide a platform to bring together Imperial researchers, students, and staff from across all of Imperial’s Faculties to highlight, discuss and disseminate findings on current research and innovations on relevant global health topics. The Forums encourage interdisciplinary discussions with the intention that they will foster inter-Faculty research initiatives and leverage the immense strengths of Imperial College to resolve global health priorities of the early 21st Century.
All members of the College from all Faculties are welcome including students at all levels. You are also encouraged to suggest topics that you would either like to hear about or contribute to. Interested members of the public and staff and students from other Universities are also very welcome to attend.
The Forum will meet normally on the third Thursday of each month between 3:00-5:00pm. In general, the first hour will be more formal presentations and the second hour more informal discussions and panel sessions.
