Global Health Scholars Symposium

scholars symposium insetEach fall the Emory Global Health Institute hosts its annual Global Health Scholars Symposium. This symposium features Emory students who were awarded EGHI Field Scholars Awards and who conducted global health projects the previous summer. The Individual Field Scholars and Multidisciplinary Field Scholars Team prepare and display academic posters that summarize their field scholar projects.

In previous years, the Global Health Scholars Symposium has typically coincided with EGHI’s annual Advisory Board meeting, which allows EGHI Advisory Board members to view the posters, meet the students, and discuss their experiences of working on a global health project. The event has also coincided with the awards ceremony for EGHI's annual Global Health Student Photography Contest.
