CALL FOR ABSTRACTS: Seeking Oral & Poster Abstract Submissions

Students, faculty, and professionals of all disciplines are invited to submit abstracts for posters and/or oral presentations on the conference theme of “Glocalization: Redefining Boundaries and Borders in Approaches to Health.”


Glocalization, the namesake and focus of this conference, emphasizes the interconnected nature of global and local health. Put more simply, glocalization shifts health perspectives, intertwining ideas from global and local viewpoints. Inspired by this concept of glocalization, we want to initiate conversations about approaching health in a collaborative way, unifying people dealing with similar issues and patterns around the world. We are all locally based on the globe.

Conference Tracks include 1) Identity and Social Movements, 2) Migrating and Displaced Persons, 3) Global Health Policies and Economics, 4) Chronic and Infectious Disease, and 5) Changing Global Ecosystems and “OneHealth”.

DEADLINE: Thursday, December 31, 2015
