Global Health Day - Abstract Submission

Poster Session Details & FAQ

Call for Poster Abstracts!

The Institute for Global Health's annual Global Health Day event is an exciting opportunity to learn about emerging topics in global health at Northwestern, explore the breadth and depth of current research in Chicago and around the world, network with colleagues, and celebrate the leadership and achievements of our leaders and membership.

Given the nature of the current pandemic, this year's Global Health Day events will be hosted completely online. We are optimistic, however about the opportunity to more thoroughly engage all of our global health affiliates, partners, and community members with this format. 

Internal and external students, faculty, community members and partners from all disciplines are welcome to participate and apply to virtually present posters on projects relevant to global health. 

Student presenters who choose to work in groups should only submit one abstract per group. If you have a mentor, obtaining his/her guidance early in the abstract preparation process is highly encouraged.

The deadline to submit abstracts is Monday, November 2nd. Abstracts should be no more than 500 words.

Presenters, or a representative, must be available to present their work (virtually) at Global Health Day on Friday, December 4th, 2020.  All accepted applicants will receive more details about the poster presentation format and presenter expectations in the coming weeks. 

On the following page you will be prompted to submit details about yourself and your co-authors (if applicable), as well as enter your abstract.

The Global Health Day schedule will be available here once it is finalized.
