Global Health Collaborative

Family planning research in Kenya - Dr Lucy Obolensky, EGHO research project.

Global Health Cafe series

The Global Health Collaborative (GHC) was set up in 2016 to bring together individuals and organisations, across Plymouth and the wider South West, who have an interest in, or are already working in, Global Health (GH). 

The GHC aims to share learning, enable new International health partnerships to be set up, and increase both GH education and work/experience opportunities for health professionals of all levels, both in international and 'locally global' settings.

GH cafes are informal semi structured events which aim to: showcase local GH work, share learning, link interested individuals and signpost to educational/work opportunities/future GH partnerships.

Wednesday 27th June, 12.30-13.30    

N14, ITTC building, Plymouth Science Park 

Dr Aban Gautem, MSc Clinical Research student in Plymouth and a doctor from Nepal. Aban will be talking about an organisation 'Mountain Heart Nepal' that he set up after the Nepalese Earthquake, initially to provide accessible medical treatment but that now promotes a more self - sustainable health practice. 

This will be a far smaller meeting than the last GH cafe in May with Dr Dimond. The available room is much smaller so please let me know in advance if you are planning on coming. We will have tea/coffee available but no lunch this time. 

Thursday 27th September, 6-8pm   

Rolle 605, Drake Circus, University of Plymouth

This is our second joint event with the GH collaborative and the Institute of Health and Community. Ex Plymouth Director of Public Health Dr Kelechi Nnoaham will be coming back to speak about his work in Global Health and Public Health

Innovation Training

'Innovation in the wilds/peripatetic learning' 18 – 20 July 2018

The Global Health Collaborative and Institute of Health and Community have arranged a free innovation training programme. 

This is open to staff and students but registration is required. 

This event brings to life the topic of innovation, by using vivid examples of industrial heritage in the beautiful setting of Dartmoor National Park. The core approach here is to use the outdoor environment to trigger deeper learning and the acquisition of tacit knowledge, and explore the way we learn whilst in the open air.
