2020 Global Health Symposium: Connecting Scientific Knowledge & Indigenous Wisdom

The 2020 Global Health Symposium program begins at 4:45 p.m., Tuesday, April 7, in the Health Sciences Learning Center atrium and adjoining rooms. The evening is free and open to the public.

Faculty, staff, clinicians and students are invited to submit abstracts for poster and podium presentations. Submissions are welcome for projects from across disciplines, from veterinary medicine to education, human health to environmental studies, and more. Concurrent podium presentations are 10 minutes long with 5 minutes for questions. Posters are available for viewing throughout the evening. Abstracts are due by February 18, 2020.

With its 16th annual Global Health Symposium, the University of Wisconsin-Madison Global Health Institute invites indigenous scholars and community members to help explore the many ways to advance health across the world. They will join faculty, staff, clinicians and students from the UW-Madison community who will share their global research, education and outreach projects.

“Connecting Scientific Knowledge and Indigenous Wisdom” will explore the intersection of traditional practices that advance well-being and academic research, education and outreach projects that also promote health. It will bring together representatives from Wisconsin’s First Nations, world indigenous communities and the university to showcase the complexities of health challenges and the many kinds of expertise needed to address them.
