About the Event

The Global Health Lunch and Learn seminar series is a monthly event which enriches the global health offerings available to students and faculty members by featuring expert and diverse multidisciplinary speakers from across the greater UBC community and beyond who are dedicated to global health innovation through scholarship, research, and practice.

The seminars are interactive and discussion-based presentations where presenters discuss their own experiences and current issues in global health. The audience is also challenged to look at the intersection of working in global public health in both local and global contexts and encouraged to think about their future roles as leaders and contributors in the field.
