Description


This half-day, trainee-led satellite session aims to provide participants with the advocacy tools and communication skills needed to address global health disparities in a sustainable manner. This session will offer unique opportunities for trainees to establish or broaden their peer networks by meeting and working with interdisciplinary professionals who share a common interest in advancing the field of global health. Participants will be able to engage with a number of experts and scholars from multidisciplinary backgrounds within the global health community while strengthening fundamental skills in global health research and practice through the application of case studies.




SESSION SCHEDULE

8AM – 8:50AM

Opening Session Address: Wafaa El-Sadr, MD, MPH, MPA, Director of ICAP at Columbia University and the Global Health Initiative at the Mailman School of Public Health at Columbia University. A prominent researcher, Dr. El-Sadr has led numerous epidemiological, clinical, behavioral, and implementation science research studies that have furthered the understanding of the prevention and management of HIV, TB, and non-communicable diseases. Her talk will address "Health disparities and access to healthcare around the world". A question and answer (Q&A) session with the audience will follow Dr. El-Sadr’s talk.

While Dr. Mukherjee will discuss the skills trainees and new researchers need to advocate on global health issues within science or academia, Dr. Kaplan will focus on how to effectively communicate global health issues to a non-academic audience. This workshop will also include group case study discussions for participants. After individual group case study deliberations, all participants will engage in dialogue on the potential solutions from each group. This wrap-up session for the Workshop will be led by TAC members as well as the speakers.
