Theme of conference is gender, sexuality, and social movements in global health.
Keynote speaker: Stella Nyanzi, PhD, anthropologist and research fellow, Makerere Social Research Institute, Makerere University, Uganda.
A team of 30 students from across UW schools and departments have organized a conference around powerful topics in the margins of most discussions in global health -- a deeper understanding of social and political movements, diverse sexualities and sexual health, gender-based violence, reproductive rights, global discrimination against the LGBTQ community, income inequality, and universal access to health care. With over 20 sponsors, and an additional 11 co-sponsors, the conference will feature perspectives from multiple disciplines, cultures and communities. The Western Regional Health Conference is for anyone interested in deepening their knowledge base about global health, and the impact of movements to improve health globally.
