Global Health Week
The inaugural Global Health Week took place in November 2011 as the Office of Global Health was completing a three year strategic plan and formally launched their programmatic efforts with a week-long event.
The objectives of Global Health Week are:
Increase the visibility of faculty’s global health activities in education, research, patient care and community engagement.
Raise awareness of local and international partnerships that are addressing global health issues.
All events are co-sponsored by MCW departments, offices and centers. Topic areas intentionally cross all of our missions of clinical care, research, education and community engagement.
Since 2011 the week’s events have hosted nearly 1,800 participants.
Global Health Week is an opportunity to co-promote the diverse communities our faculty, staff, and partners are serving to advance health. We anticipate that together, we can continue to share credible, collaborative, and mutually beneficial efforts in global health from neighborhoods to nations.
Contact the Office of Global Health Manager, Tifany Frazer for more information.
