The Student and Young Professional Global Health Summit aims to give space to students and young professionals (SYPs) involved or interested in the global health field. This is the forum for global health SYPs to connect, network, engage, and be inspired.
Leading experts as well as outstanding SYPs will question what the upcoming global health challenges of our time and report on what Canadians are doing in this arena.
Participants will also be challenged to think about their career paths through workshops focused on global health mentorship and a panel who will speak about their sometimes winding global health career path.
