As part of McGill's bicentennial celebration, the Canadian Association for Global Health (CAGH) McGill student chapter and McGill Global Health Programs present:

Decolonizing Global Health: Student Perspectives

Students engaged in global health education and research at McGill University come from many disciplinary backgrounds. Many are familiar with the concept of “decolonization of global health” and its importance for the field; However, students are often at a loss to articulate what it entails. This is a speed-networking-style event by students, for students who are interested in global health research and practice, to exchange their ideas and learnings on what constitutes decolonization of global health. In a moderated exercise, students will get the chance to speak to their peers and answer prompts on what decolonizing global health actually looks like.

This is a hybrid event where the in-person component is open to McGill students while the online portion is open to all and will be live-streamed on YouTube.

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 Peoples from across Turtle Island. We are grateful to have the opportunity to work on this land.
