University, government and philanthropic leaders converge in Seattle to advance global health
Date:9/9/2010

More than 600 people will gather for the Consortium of Universities for Global Health (CUGH) annual conference being held at the University of Washington in Seattle on September 19-21 to discuss the critical role of universities in global health. The conference is the largest university-based global health conference ever held.

Participants from all of the major university-based global health programs in North America and Britain, and many leaders from universities in Africa, Asia, Latin America, the Caribbean will join global health leaders to discuss scientific advances, educational innovations and the infrastructure required to support academic global health programs. Topics include the impact of climate change on human health, global health policy and diplomacy, detection and control of infections from animals, innovative technologies, injury and violence prevention (including burn-related injuries to women, i.e.,"bride burning"), and women and children's health.

"The Consortium is becoming a wonderful collaboration to bring the innovation and energy of universities into global health," said King Holmes, MD, PhD, chair of Global Health at the University of Washington. "The University of Washington is honored to be hosting the second annual CUGH conference."

The theme of the 2010 CUGH annual meeting is "Transforming Global Health: The Interdisciplinary Power of Universities" and will look at the tremendous contributions that universities can and must make to expand the science base through interdisciplinary efforts in research, education and training, and service programs.

"This is an unprecedented time in global health -- a time in which idealism, innovation and passion across generations, coupled with surging resources, have redefined what is possible and created a new vision of a world not fractured by health disparities," said Judith Wasserheit, MD, MPH, vice chair of Global Health at the University of Washington.
