About the lecture
Academic medical institutions in the U.S. are increasingly engaging with partners in LMICs. While these partnerships have the potential to provide mutual benefit to trainees, faculty and patients at partnering institutions, questions have arisen about the sustainability and ethics involved in global health partnerships. Furthermore, the application and understanding of the principles of health equity, health disparities and social determinants of health-topics frequently talked about within the discipline of global health-are critical to the care of children here in the U.S. Jeff Robison will present an example of a global health training program that combines these principles abroad and at home while providing for a model that is financial sustainable and scalable.
Lunch will be provided. This event is part of Think Global, a weekly lecture series at the Duke Global Health Institute. It is free and open to the public. Parking for Trent Hall is available in the Duke Medicine Circle Parking Garage, located at 302 Trent Drive.
