Global Health Scholars Day

The Indiana University Center for Global Health convenes Global Health Scholars Day each May to showcase the excellent work being done by the IU community to improve the care of patients worldwide, research the complexities of global health, and educate learners about the care of local and global populations.

Global Health Scholars Day features poster presentations and the opportunity for those interested in global health throughout the university to network and share information.
