The Dahdaleh Institute for Global Health Research at York University will host its fourth annual Global Health Intern Symposium on April 20 to highlight interns’ research and experiential education journey over the past year.

This public event will feature some of the exceptional student interns who have contributed to research at the Institute addressing critical global health challenges. Seven York students will present on their work with Dahdaleh Institute for Global Health Research faculty and fellows on the following topics:

  • war, disaster and migration; medical humanitarianism;
  • equity, diversity, inclusion and decolonization within the School of Global Health;
  • performance accountability, TB, and antenatal pregnant women in sub-Saharan Africa;
  • SMART conservation in Belize;
  • global governance of antimicrobial resistance; and
  • integrated climate-biodiversity strategies.

As part of these global health research projects, Dahdaleh Institute for Global Health Research interns have undertaken literature reviews, data synthesis, cataloguing, content development, stakeholder engagement and much more.

Through the Dahdaleh Institute Internship Program, students apply critical research skills and pursue meaningful research opportunities under the guidance of leading global health researchers. Interns benefit from the unique opportunity to participate in various of stages of a research project, giving them valuable experience and insight into the field of critical global health research.
