Global Health Day


The Institute for Global Health's annual Global Health Day event is an exciting opportunity to learn about emerging topics in global health at Northwestern, explore the breadth and depth of current research in Chicago and around the world, network with colleagues, and celebrate the leadership and achievements of our leaders and membership.

Given the nature of the current pandemic, this year's Global Health Day events will be hosted completely online. We are optimistic, however about the opportunity to more thoroughly engage all of our global health affiliates, partners, and community members with this format.
