Upcoming UAEM workshop

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 direct advocacy. If you are interested in exploring the answers to these questions, please join us for this exciting event:

Tuesday, October 21st, 2008
6:30pm – 9:00pm
2750 Heather St. (at 12th Ave), Vancouver, BC

At this workshop, we will provide an overview of the biomedical research and development process and its driving factors, present some of the barriers to global health that arise within this process, and discuss approaches to reducing these barriers.

This event is part of the monthly workshop series presented by the Global Health Initiative, a student-led project in the UBC Faculty of Medicine. Food will be provided, so please RSVP to Ada Lam at ada.ghi2008@gmail.com. All are welcome!

(If you were hoping to attend our introductory seminar in September but were unable, then we would love to have you join us for this workshop: it will cover much of the same material. We hope to see you there!)
