Event description

Description

This half-day Symposium will bring together Doherty Researchers and Clinicians who work in lower-middle income countries to discuss both the challenges and rewards of working in these regions.

It is hoped that the Symposium will identify:

  • Opportunities for new collaborations.

  • Common obstacles that we can support each other with in the future.

  • Overseas institutes that the Doherty should strengthen relationships with.

    The Symposium is open to all Doherty staff and students who are interested or currently engaged in Global Health.
