[Postponed] 2024 Critical Social Science Perspectives in Global Health Research Workshop

Join us for the fifth annual Critical Social Science Perspectives in Global Health Research Workshop on Friday, March 1, 2024.

Participants will engage with the research community at York University to generate new insights, foster collaboration, and discover new research opportunities in global health research with critical social science perspectives that uses social science theory and methodology with social justice aims in global health. It is transdisciplinary, participatory, experimental, or experiential. It seeks greater effectiveness, equity, and excellence in global health by engaging directly with global public health actors, structures, and systems to transform global public health.

This year, we are excited to welcome Professor Kate Mulligan (Dalla Lana School of Public Health, University of Toronto) who will be delivering the keynote presentation titled "Won't you be my neighbour? Remaking relationships in global community health through social prescribing."

Following the keynote, we will hear from the 2023 seed grant recipients regarding the progress of their global health research projects funded by the Critical Perspectives in Global Health Seed Grant. The seed grant program supports critical global health research within the three themes at the Dahdaleh Institute (planetary health, global health and humanitarianism, and global health foresighting).

Finally, York faculty and global health researchers will then have the opportunity to deliver a brief 5-minute presentation on any current or planned research project that takes a critical social science approach to global health at the workshop. Register as a presenter to receive valuable feedback on your proposal from expert researchers. Register to present a new research idea by Thursday, February 22, 2024 by 9 a.m.
