Global Health Day 2020

Join us during the University of Minnesota Center for Global Health and Social Responsibility’s annual Global Health Day event to celebrate and discover more about global health research, education, and outreach efforts at the University of Minnesota. 

This year, we are celebrating Global Health Day in an online format to engage with global health champions around the university system. All of the events are free, open to the public, and available online.


The Future of Global Health Research Training Panel

9:00–10:30am CT, October 3, 2020
Interest in experiences and training in global health has increased substantially in the last few decades among health sciences students around the world. In response, institutions have launched multiple efforts across regions and partners to re-envision and revitalize the nature and scope of Global Health Research Training programs. Getting strong institutional commitment, and support from institutional leadership along with an engaged local partner are both integral to the success and sustainability of these programs. However, concerns keep arising regarding how best to structure and implement these programs with particular attention being drawn to unintended consequences and ethical concerns that these efforts bring.

During our Global Health Day panel, David Meya, MD and Claudia Munoz Zanzi, DVM, PhD will discuss questions on what lessons have been learned by University of Minnesota teams involved in moving forward this kind of endeavor and how these programs should be adapted to prepare the new generation of Global Health practitioners for the post-COVID era.
