Student Forum Photo 3

The CCGHR Student Chapters will be hosting their 7th Annual Student-Led Global Health Forum on March 20th, 2021 from 9:30am-3:00pm EST. The theme this year is “Navigating a Colonial Institution: systemic biases in global health research”. You can register for the virtual Forum here or find out more information on the Facebook page here.

CCGHR Student Chapters are collaborative student-led groups designed to foster research and networking in global health among campus communities from all disciplines and levels of study. Through this forum, participants will be exploring the colonial roots of global health research to understand their long standing effects and future implications. Through guest speakers, small-group workshops, and peer-to-peer learning, attendees can learn to recognize their own biases and work towards dismantling them.

Call for Abstracts

The 2021 CCGHR Student Forum Planning Committee is extending an open invitation for the submission of any project or piece related to global health for a virtual poster showcase. This is an open opportunity for undergraduate and graduate students to showcase their ideas, school projects, innovative projects, creative talents, or health promotion pieces. This opportunity allows undergraduate students who may not have a research project to gain experience in presenting at professional conferences and gain feedback on their presentation or topic of choice. We wish to provide students with practical learning experiences and a glimpse into innovative and interdisciplinary approaches to real-world problems.

Applicants are welcome to submit summaries for their health-related project to be presented through a virtual POSTER SHOWCASE. Presenters will be given the opportunity to gain feedback on their topic and presentation while sharing their work with students and other attendees.

The deadline to submit an abstract is March 5th, 2021. Abstracts can be submitted here.
