1st Sheffield Global Health Symposium – New deadline for abstract submission Monday 9 December

We are delighted to announce that the University is hosting its first ever Global Health Symposium on Thursday 23 January 2020. This is an internal-facing, interdisciplinary event aiming to bring together and showcase global health scholarship and practice from across the University. We take a broad and inclusive view of global health, to enable cross-sharing of work, wider networking and partnership building.

As such, the symposium has four themes running through it, namely:

(i) NCDs, addiction and disability

(ii) infections, immunity and vaccines

(iii) sexual, reproductive and maternal health

(iv) disaster, emergency and resilience

as well as a cross-cutting focus on capacity building, networking and partnership building in the GCRF era.

The one-day Symposium will be held in the Diamond building and you are all invited to attend, participate and present your work. Please use the attached template to submit your abstract.

The deadline for abstract submission has been extended to Monday 9 December.

The cost to register and submit abstracts for this event is £10 via the online-store, please follow the link: https://onlineshop.shef.ac.uk/conferences-and-events/faculty-of-medicine-dentistry-and-health/infection-and-immunity-and-cardiovascular-science/global-health-symposium-2020
