This event has served as an opportunity for the plethora of University researchers, academics, clinicians and students involved in Global Health activities discuss, network and highlight their respective programs and projects. We focused on the existing talent within our multi-disciplinary community, with emphasis on forging partnerships.

McGill University is located on land which has long served as a site of meeting and exchange amongst Indigenous peoples, including the Haudenosaunee and Anishinabeg nations. McGill honours, recognizes and respects these nations as the traditional stewards of the lands and waters on which peoples of the world now gather. Today, this meeting place is still the home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island and we are grateful to have the opportunity to work on this land.
