Global Health Research Convening

The 2020 Global Health Research Convening

McCaw Hall, Arrillaga Alumni Center, January 29, 2020 | 8:30 am – 6 pm


This year's theme--Human and Planetary Health

The Stanford Global Health Research Convening is a one-day conference, held annually, to bring together students, faculty and researchers who are working in global health.

The convening aims to foster discussion among researchers across a variety of disciplines whose work impacts global health. We look for convening participants to share their ideas and experience, and to explore new potential collaborations and opportunities for student engagement. Prior convenings have attracted broad participation from engineers, economists, earth scientists ecologists, mathematical modelers, and physician scientists.

The Stanford Center for Innovation in Global Health and the Woods Institute hosted an international meeting on Planetary Health. The solution-oriented discussion created a moment that will continue with our sixth annual global health research convening.
