Global Health Week and Career Fair
The Global Health Resource Center hosts a global health career event titled “Futures in Global Health.” The annual event provides a forum for UW undergraduate, graduate, and professional students to explore the interdisciplinary field of global health. In 2009, the first year, more than 1,000 students attended the career fair that showcased t30 leading global health organizations. A lecture and panel discussion, “Preparing a Future Generation of Global Health Professionals,” allowed students to ask tough questions to top hiring professionals.
