Global Health Symposium Schedule

2022 Global Health Symposium
Thanks to COVID 19, the subject of vaccination is now the stuff of cocktail party repartee. “Antibodies,” “flatten the curve,” and “spike protein” are household terms. But how much do you really know about the history of vaccination, diseases eradicated by vaccination, and the on-going battle for equity in vaccine distribution? The ninth annual Global Health Symposium will strive to address these issues. Please join us March 21-24, 2022 and learn from both local specialists as well as colleagues from the WHO and UNICEF. 
All sessions will be held from noon - 1pm
