Western Regional Global Health Conference

April 26 - April 28

$35 – $75

In it’s 15th year, this is one of the largest student-led global health conferences in the nation. This year’s conference is themed Criminalization of the Body: Life, Law and Liberation and will explore current issues related to how policy and policing impact the health of marginalized communities around the world, nationally, and locally. Applying a feminist framework, the conference will examine systemic racism, power, and privilege as they relate to criminalization based on immutable characteristics such as nationality/ethnicity, race, indigeneity, gender and sexuality.  With a particular focus on liberation, emancipatory imaginaries, and health activism–the conference hopes to uncover injustice happening globally and what we can all do about it. The key sub-themes of the conference are Race/Ethnicity, Migration, and LGBTQ+ justice.

 

Featuring Keynote Speaker Festus Ibanda Kisa, a sexual and gender minorities activist and sexual reproductive health and rights advocate in Q-Initiative Eldoret, Kenya.
