Recognizing the variety of important global health work across Los Angeles, students, faculty and staff at the University of California, Los Angeles; University of Southern California; and Charles R. Drew University of Medicine and Science have come together to organize the first annual Los Angeles Global Health Conference.
Coordinated by a student committee, the conference aims to educate and interact with members of the UCLA, USC and Los Angeles communities about the varying health disparities both in our backyards and around the world. Home to people from more than 140 countries speaking 224 different languages, Los Angeles’s rich cultural diversity makes it an ideal place to examine the current status of world health.
The 2016 conference theme is “A Transdisciplinary Approach to Global Health.” The term transdisciplinary refers to bringing together individuals from across various disciplines to work jointly in creating new conceptual, methodological and translational innovations that move beyond discipline-specific approaches. The Los Angeles Global Health Conference will challenge participants to think about global health issues from a transdisciplinary perspective—blending traditional disciplinary approaches to create new frameworks and solutions.
The price for student registration is $20—$15 if purchased by Jan. 12—and $30 for non-students.
