The theme of this year’s Global Health Students and Young Professionals Summit (GHSYP) Summit is Ideas to Impact: Toolbox Talks: Practical Skills for Becoming Global Health Professionals.
This year’s GHSYPS aims to prepare attendees for becoming emergent health professionals by introducing applicable skills grounded in equity-centered practices. Some skills that attendees may explore include project implementation, conducting evaluations, community building and knowledge translation. Key learning outcomes for GHSYPS 2021 will revolve around addressing health disparities in three urgent global health topics: planetary health, marginalized communities. Leading experts and outstanding Students and Young Professionals (SYPs) will question the upcoming global health challenges of our time and current Canadian projects in global health. Participants will be challenged to think about how to best leverage their skills, seek out professional development opportunities, and become agents of change in an ever diversifying and multidisciplinary global health sphere. The GHSYPs Summit aims to provide a space for SYPs involved or interested in the global health field to connect, network, engage, and be inspired.
The 2021 Global Health Students and Young Professionals Summit will take place online on November 27th, 2021.
