The Wright State University Boonshoft School of Medicine's 14th Annual Global Health Initiative Symposium and Global Food Tasting will be held Thursday, May 2, at 5 p.m., in White Hall at Wright State University. The event will begin with a global food tasting, silent auction and student presentations to raise funds for medical students participating in the Boonshoft School of Medicine International Education Program.
First-year medical students at the Boonshoft School of Medicine founded the Global Health Initiative in 2000. The initiative’s mission is to enhance the education of Wright State medical students by facilitating their exposure to both the medical issues facing people in other countries and the medical issues of people in this country who have immigrated and, in so doing, inspire greater compassion, social justice and empathy within future physicians.
The cost is $50 for general admission and $20 for Boonshoft School of Medicine students. For more information, contact Delores James at firstname.lastname@example.org or 937-245-7623.
