Multicultural and Global Health Symposium

The Multicultural and Global Health Symposium is an exciting annual event that brings together the UTHSC community, state leaders and international health experts to learn more about emerging topics in multicultural and global health. It is an opportunity to explore the breadth and depth of current research at UTHSC and around the world, network with colleagues, and celebrate the leadership and achievements of our leaders, faculty, and students.

The Inaugural 2021 Symposium will take place on November 6, 2021, under the theme “Re-imaging Multicultural and Global Health in the Age of COVID”.

We look forward to having you join us during what promises to be an exciting and informative symposium.

Journal Club

The CMGH Director or a faculty member facilitates a monthly discussion with students, residents, fellows, and staff focused on 1-2 selected articles on multicultural or global health. These articles address current and sometimes controversial topics in public health, research, program development, and equity.

Members will alternate in choosing journal articles that are particularly interesting and that is likely to stimulate robust discussion.  Manuscripts in preparation are also discussed. Journal club is open to all interested individuals.
