The Department of Public Health Sciences at MUSC in collaboration with the MUSC Center for Global Health and the Peace Caucus in affiliation with the American Public Health Association will be hosting a global health symposium. This event will discuss how war and armed conflicts are relentless events, producing devastating effects on the wellbeing of populations, especially the vulnerable (children, disabled, refugees, etc.). Despite the grave effects on populations and its preventable nature, war is still not considered a global or local public health priority issue. This symposium will host a panel of presenters that will deliberate the health crisis of war, highlighting case studies from around the world and its impact on health workers, health facilities, humanitarian work, vulnerable populations and undertakings of global health research, among the many other impacts.

Event Information: Friday, February 4th | 9:00 am - 5:00 pm EST Virtual on Zoom
