The Global Health Research Symposium showcases global health research conducted by current Northwestern undergraduates both here and abroad. Poster presenters include IPD/Global Health Stduies fellowship winners, undergraduate research grant winners, and students who have completed innovative projects while overseas on IPD programs. The symposium is a great way to not only learn about the amazing projects students have created but also discover research fellowship opportunities at Northwestern.
2013-2014 Circumnavigator Travel-Study Grant winner Elizabeth Larson will give a special presentation on her project “Tackling Childhood Malnutrition: A global study of scaling up grassroots approaches to catalyze world progress." Elizabeth traveled to six countries across the world last summer to study how high impact grassroots nutrition programs can be scaled up to catalyze progress across wider populations.
