This is an open call to York researchers to consider presenting at this year's in-person workshop.

York faculty and researchers (with the support of a York faculty member) are invited to deliver a brief five-minute, two-slide presentation on any current or planned research project that takes a critical social science approach to global health at the workshop. Presenters will receive valuable feedback from experts in the field in preparation for the Critical Perspectives in Global Health Seed Grant Applications (valued up to $7,000 CAD each). The seed grants support critical global health research that contributes to the three themes of the Dahdaleh Institute (planetary health, global health and humanitarianism, and global health foresighting).

The registration deadline to present a new research idea is Friday, February 16, 2024.
