We want to “feed the minds” of residents, students, learners and others who have a keen interest in and affinity for global health.

FGH provides a great opportunity for our community to learn from those who are involved in global health activities here and around the world and increase our understanding of the field of global health. This may include global health research, philosophy, approaches, attitudes and the efforts in the areas of health disparities and health inequities.

  • PRESENTATION FORMAT: We would like this platform to be an opportunity for you to share about your personal journey, educational background, mentors, books and articles that inspired you, challenges and lessons learned, successes and epiphanies, life-changing moments and the heart breaks.

  • These presentations can be either formal or more conversational with 20 minutes of presenting and 20 minutes of engaging with the audience. You decide your preference.
  • GOAL of the PROGRAM: Our goal is to provide some foundational information on pathways into global health as well as informing the attitudes of our students to help them become strong partners in global health who engage others in reciprocal relationships that are mutually beneficial.

  • PROCESS: If you are willing to present, we would ask you to fill out this redcap survey.
    • The survey will collect a variety of information including a few dates/times you are available to present Kansas City Central Time by Zoom.
    • We typically provide presentations at noon, from 12-12:45, Monday-Thursday. However, to accommodate our international presenters and the variance of student availability, we hope to be able to offer presentations at varying times between 8:00 am and 7:00 pm KC/Central time as students have expressed some interest in evening presentations.
    • We hope that students, residents, learners and faculty from our international partner institutions will also join for these educational presentations. We realize that the time/day difference could be a barrier, so all presentations will be recorded and accessible for viewing.
    • My team will manage the scheduling and confirm your day/time based on the submissions received. Christine Hernandez chernandez12@kumc.edu will manage the scheduling calendar.
    • We hope to have presentations throughout the academic year.
