Global Health Summit

Summit begins Friday, Oct. 11 at 8 a.m.
Health Sciences Center campus, Morgantown, WV

The Global Engagement Office sponsors this annual summit as a forum for emerging topics in Global Health and an opportunity to nurture connections in the region and nationally focused on global health from which West Virginia can leverage partnerships and make resource investments go further.

West Virginia University is a center of globally-focused health research, service, and education. Because we share an awareness that many health outcomes in our state mirror those of low resource settings globally and that broad global engagement is necessary to the development of our economy, our emphasis on global health is not just timely, it is imperative to understanding potential solutions to West Virginia problems. 

There are no fees for this event.

Conference Learning Objectives:

  • Consider more effective approaches for the utilization of limited resources - financial, work force, technology, etc. – in low-resource settings
  • Discuss the capacity for delivering social justice through healthcare
  • Build a multidisciplinary network to promote, establish, and implement collaboration in the field of Global Health
  • Participate in a dynamic forum for Global Health in the state of West Virginia
