Event description

Description

For the third year in a row, Global Brigades is partnering with International Service Learning and other student leaders to host a conference with the purpose of bringing together student-led international service organizations and other interested students, to foster conversations to improve our international footprint. The first half of the conference will be focused on topics that apply to students interested in international service, including ethical service practices, current events, the history of U.S. involvement abroad, as well as speakers' experiences pertaining to global health and politics. The second half of the conference consists of the annual Vision Station Screening Conference, run by the University of Pittsburgh Chapter of Global Medical Brigades. The Vision Station Screening Conference will include discussions of the history of this station, how to run a vision station and what you will need, current issues and monopolies within the eyeglass industry that affect the accessibility of eyeglasses around the world, and how we can improve it.

The conference will consist of a keynote and panel of local experts, student-led breakout sessions, and more.

We invite Pitt students, either involved or not involved with international service organizations, as well as other University Chapters of Global Medical Brigades to be involved.

NOTE: This is an OCC-sponsored event. All attendees will be required to confirm attendance with a QR code provided at the event. THIS IS A MANDATORY EVENT FOR ALL MEMBERS IN GLOBAL BRIGADES.
