Global Health Rehabilitation Initiative (GHRI) Forum

The School of Physical & Occupational Therapy (SPOT) GHRI Forum is a regular event that brings together students, clinicians and researchers interested in topics related to global health and rehabilitation. Each session will feature an invited guest who will discuss experiences of a global health activity (in Canada or internationally). The emphasis of these sessions is on sharing and discussion, rather than formal presentations.  Join us! Light snacks served.
