Call for Proposals – 8th Summer Institute on Migration and Global Health

8th Summer Institute on Migration and Global Health
Berkeley and Oakland, California / Monday, June 24, 2013 – Friday, June 28, 2013

The Summer Institute on Migration and Global Health is an international event that offers researchers, faculty, graduate students and professionals working with migrant communities around the world, a unique opportunity to learn about different health issues that affect mobile populations. International experts will present on the relationship between migration and global health from public health, public policy, and social science perspectives.

The organization of the 8th Summer Institute on Migration and Global Health is a joint effort of the Health Initiative of the Americas –a program of UC Berkeley’s School of Public Health-, the UC Global Health Institute through its Center of Expertise on Migration and Health, and the Migration and Health Research Center.

UC Graduate Student Workshop Proposals
As a special track of the Summer Institute, the UC Center of Expertise on Migration and Health (COEMH) will offer a Research Training Workshop for University of California graduate students, recent postdoctoral scholars, and junior faculty attending the Institute.

The Research Training Workshop will feature presentations of ongoing or recently completed research relating to migration and health, undertaking by graduate students, recent postdocs, and junior faculty, through the UC system. UC faculty members will serve as discussants, providing expert feedback on the student’s work and commenting on its relevance to their own research. The workshop organizing committee will seek publication of selected papers in a peer-reviewed journal.
