Description

8th Annual Global Health Conference: Bringing Global Health Home

The Global Health Conference is dedicated to raising awareness about pressing global health issues. This will be a forum to discuss and analyze practices and policies that move us towards sustainability and health equity. This one-day conference is an opportunity for researchers, students, and community members involved in global health to network and discuss exciting research, programs, and projects in the field. We hope to inspire participants to work collaboratively toward sustainability in global health,locally and globally.

We have planned keynote speakers, breakout sessions, a community expo and much more to foster collaborative thinking and action regarding social issues that affect communities locally and internationally.

Our keynotes include:

  1. Bruce Reeder, Professor Emeritus of Community Health and Epidemiology at the University of Saskatchewan, Saskatoon, Canada. He has worked as a physician and epidemiologist with Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors Without Borders) in Liberia on the control of Ebola Virus Disease, Kyrgyzstan on the control of drug-resistant tuberculosis and HIV/AIDS, and in the Democratic Republic of Congo and Central African Republic on the establishment of surveillance and response systems for epidemic diseases.

  2. Jason Mercredi, Executive Director at AIDS Saskatoon. He is a co-founder of Canada’s National HIV Testing Day, developed Canada’s first Aboriginal language condom campaign, successfully advocated for the expansion of Naloxone kits across Saskatchewan & drug pipes in provincial needle exchanges, wrote the policy update for SAID Program recipients to increase their earnings exemption from $200 to $500 a month, and is currently establishing the provinces first safe consumption site.

  3. Stephanie Nixon, Associate Professor in the Department of Physical Therapy, cross-appointed at the Rehabilitation Sciences Institute and the Dalla Lana School of Public Health at the University of Toronto. She has been an HIV activist and global health researcher for 20 years. Her research program in Sub-Saharan Africa focuses on how rehabilitation can support people as they grow up and grow older with HIV. Stephanie also studies and teaches about health equity in Canada.

This year we are excited to offer naloxone training sessions at the Conference with AIDS Saskatoon! If this is something you are interested in, please fill out the following form AFTER registering for the conference: https://forms.gle/6k1jgwgypJsEDa1i6
