The Global Health Conference, sponsored by the UI Global Health Studies Program (GHSP), provides students anopportunity to participate in a professional conference addressing primary issues in global health. The fall 2012 conference encompasses themes related to the need for a re-evaluation of energy needs and mechanisms to produce energy through the lens of health impacts. It explores current challenges and potential remedies to global energy needs. Speakers will be drawn from across the world and the US, and the course will provide an opportunity for students to hear first-hand from individuals who are actively improving global health. The seminar format allows face-to-face interactions. Students are challenged to connect the knowledge and skills they are obtaining in their coursework to world-wide health problems. Students will receive detailed information regarding their participation options at a pre-conference organizational meeting.

Some meals and refreshments are provided for conference registrants.
