2015 Global Health Workshop Highlights



Where in the World is Family Medicine? 

2015 Global Health Workshop Attendees used posted pinmaps to show us where they've worked, served, taught, consulted, or promoted health and family medicine, to illustrate the need for and power of family medicine across the globe.

Common Interest Lunches

Attendees participated in self-guided luncheons to network with others experiencing the same challenges and achievements. Participants chose their tables by discussion topic and engaged in thoughtful dialogue and idea-sharing with colleagues.

Interactive Breakout Sessions

Breakout sessions for the 2015 Global Health Workshop were broken down into six tracks:

  • Global Health Lecture Series
  • Global Expansion of Family Medicine
  • Reflections in Global Health
  • Case Studies in Program Design
  • Focus on Research
  • Ideas Worth Sharing

In addition, facilitated discussion sessions provided opportunities for informal interaction around topics of common interest.
