The Global Health Initiative, in collaboration with LSE LIFE, is organising a Networking Event to discuss “What does Global Health mean to you?”
The objective of this session is to facilitate interaction between students and staff at LSE working on global health courses/research across the School. The event will start with a short presentation of global health research at LSE and will be followed by an interactive discussion with students and faculty.
Using the “World Café” format, small groups will be invited to discuss and approach the topic from different disciplinary angles and then share their views with the larger group. Networking drinks will follow to continue the discussion.
This event is free and open to LSE Staff and Students only. Please register here.
Staff and students are advised that they must have a negative lateral flow test within the past 4 days to attend this event, this will be checked upon arrival.
If you have any adjustment requirements, please contact us on email@example.com as soon as possible so that arrangements, where possible, may be arranged.
