Save the Date for Global WACh’s Next Big Thing

UPDATE ON MARCH 20:  The University of Washington is working closely with public health officials to monitor evolving recommendations for holding events during the COVID-19 outbreak. To prioritize the health and safety of our research community, Global WACh has decided to postpone this event.

Mark your calendars for Global WACh’s Next Big Thing: Saving children’s lives through accelerating research into policy and practice 

Date: Monday, June 1, 2020

Time: 4-6 PM

Location: University of Washington Husky Union Building (map)

Please join the Global Center for Integrated Health of Women, Adolescents, and Children (Global WACh) at our annual year-end celebration where we highlight the achievements of the Center over the past year in research, training, and service.

The Gut Health and Child Survival scientific priority area of Global WACh is committed to reducing child mortality by targeting enteric infections and diarrheal diseases. During the 2020 Global WACh year-end event, members of this priority area and guest experts will share cutting edge research informing and testing interventions and strategies for moving research into policy and practice quickly. Keynote speakers include Dr. Farah Qamar (Associate Professor, Department of Paediatrics and Child Health, Aga Khan University) and Dr. Nigel Rollins (Department of Maternal, Newborn, Child and Adolescent Health World Health Organization).

​The event will include a reception to showcase capstone projects by our graduating class of Global WACh Certificate students to date.  The reception will be an excellent opportunity for networking with WACh researchers and community members over refreshments.
