I was the one of the co-hosts for the Global Health Symposium, which was a 2 day conference, taking places at Queen's University Belfast (2018).

Following the success of the Global Health Symposium in previous years, the organising committee has extended the format this year to include an additional full-day event on the 26th April aimed primarily at postgraduate and postdoctoral researchers (and even undergraduate students) from any institution across the UK and Ireland working on or interested in any aspect of global health. (Here, 'global health’ is interpreted in its widest sense, and includes all aspects of international and public health.)

We are committed to making this event a supportive and encouraging environment for postgraduate and postdoctoral researchers to present their research and to network with others across a wide range of academic disciplines.
The second day of the Symposium (27th April) will follow a similar format to that used in previous years. Invited talks will be given by leading national and international researchers on the theme 'm-Health for Low Resource Areas: Can smartphones, wearables and sensors deliver care where it's most needed?’
