Global Health Night 2018: “High Quality Health Systems: Ready for a Revolution?”

Event

Centre Mont-Royal, 2200, rue Mansfield, Montreal, QC, CA

On November 6, 2018, we are excited to present our annual Global Health Night, a special evening where students can share their experiences working on global health with the wider McGill community via the poster fair and hear from a renowned speaker in the field.

This year, we are delighted to welcome Dr. Margaret E. Kruk, MD, MPH, Associate Professor of Global Health at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and current Chair of the Lancet Global Health Commission on High Quality Health Systems in the SDG Era.

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.
