Global Health Academy - GSK student forum: Innovations to better global health

The University of Edinburgh’s Global Health Academy is a hub for all students and staff to meet to think through Global Health Challenges.

Join us on November 7th 2013 where senior staff from the GSK Sustainable Health Lab (the heart of GSK innovations thinking) will lead a workshop for students looking at new ways of building innovative thinking into tackling intractable health problems

The event is open to students from all parts of the University, studying all disciplines, in an effort to bring together the very best in innovative thinking to look at problems and potential solutions from different perspectives.

The types of intractable global health challenges that we will look at from many different angles will be:

  • How can we get the right medication to the right people at the right time?
  • How can patients with multi-morbidity (many diseases) be better managed in health systems across the work that often work in single silos dividing services for cardiovascular disease, diabetes, HIV, cancers etc ?

Spaces on the workshop are limited.  To gain a place please send a short (roughly 150 word) argument on an idea for repurposing an old and successful solution to a new Global Health Problem, to Lisa Wood at globalhealth@ed.ac.uk by Friday 1 November 2013, and we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know if you have been successful in gaining a place.
