Interested in networking with professionals, academics, and fellow students in global health, development, and/or engineering? Learning the perspectives of public health, business, engineering, medicine, development, policy, and more?
Be an organizer for the Global Health & Engineering Meetup Group!
We are now recruiting officers to help organize monthly Meetups for 2013! Officers will get the chance to build leadership and communication skills, network with professionals/academics/students in and around the Boston area, and choose meetup topics. Each meeting usually take place at Boston University, but can extend to other schools in the Boston area, and consists of an informal seminar session with food and refreshments.
Questions and interested parties, please email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
By the way, check out the slideshow below of last year’s first Global Health & Engineering Symposium at Boston University:
Thanks to everyone that came out to last week’s symposium! We had three wonderful talks by Dr. Jim Collins, Dr. Lisa Hirschhorn, and Ting Shih, followed by a lively discussion moderated by Dr. Beverly Brown, and ended with a networking reception and poster presentations. Congratulations to our poster winners (George Daaboul, Nga Ho, and Anna Young), and special thanks to everyone else that presented their work! Check out pictures from the event below. And keep an eye out for future seminars!
We have three great speakers coming from engineering, public health, and business backgrounds, along with a panel session and poster & networking social hour. RSVP today! Furthermore, tell us about your work and interests by submitting a poster! Cash prizes go to the top three. Click here or the links on the right for more details.
The site has a new look, but same content, for easier reading. Also, we’re currently preparing for a Fall symposium, with a panel discussion, posters, and prizes, along with our regular seminar format. Stay tuned!
