UBC UAEM – Global Health Conference

UBC Universities Allied for Essential Medicines is hosting a Global Health Conference on March 16th, with a keynote from Dr. Julio Montaner. With a focus on the international access to medicines crisis, the conference aims to identify the hurdles preventing life-saving drugs from effectively reaching patients in low and middle income countries. From a multidisciplinary prospective, it will introduce you to the current status quo through talks by leaders in the field. Afterwards, short presentations given by peers will let you know what others are doing to tackle these issues. By the end, you will be a part of a cohesive network of students mobilized for change in global health.

When: Saturday, March 16th, 9:00-5:00
Where: St. John’s College on UBC Campus, 2111 Lower Mall
