2008 Introductory Seminar

Medical research at universities has a major impact on people’s health around the world.
How can we ensure that universities do the research that is most desperately needed?
How can we ensure that people in poor countries have access to the fruits of that research?

Universities Allied for Essential Medicines (UAEM) is a student group that tackles these issues through hands-on advocacy.  We have already had a lot of success at UBC and other universities, but there is a lot of work left to do, and we need your help! Want to learn more?

Saturday, September 27th, 2008
9:30am – 2:00pm
2750 Heather St. (at 12th Ave), Vancouver, BC

Please join us for this comprehensive introduction to crucial global health topics such as drug development, patenting, and access to treatment — whether you’d like to get involved, or just learn about these important issues.
