3rd Annual Global Health Research Symposium

Tuesday, February 12, 2013 - 5:00pm to 7:00pm

 

The Global Health Research Symposium showcases global health research conducted by current Northwestern undergraduates both here and abroad. Presenters may include IPD fellowship winners, undergraduate research grant winners, and students who have completed innovative projects while overseas on IPD programs.
