2022 Penn Global Surgery Symposium: Capacity Building and Sustainability

If you have any interest in learning about the current state of capacity building and sustainability in LMICs and improving access, or if you’re just interested in getting involved with global health or global surgery in general, please RSVP and attend the symposium!

Please join us on Saturday, November 12th from 11 am - 2 pm for the 2022 Penn Global Surgery Group Fall Symposium on capacity building and sustainability in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). We have two fantastic presentations this year. Dr. Tamara Fitzgerald, Associate Professor of Surgery and Associate Research Professor of Global Health at Duke University, will deliver our keynote address. Dr. Georges Azzie, Pediatric Surgeon at the Hospital for Sick Children at the University of Toronto, will then discuss his real-world experiences in this area with his major collaborator in Botswana, Dr. Alemayehu. There will be a Q&A session after each talk, followed by a reception where attendees can eat lunch, mingle with each other, and potentially browse posters showcasing global health research.
