WHEN YOU RETURN: TRANSLATING YOUR GLOBAL HEALTH EXPERIENCES TO MILWAUKEE
The Marquette Forum is co-hosting a workshop at the Medical College of Wisconsin during the seventh annual Global Health Week. The workshop will focus on A Transformation of Global Health Knowledge towards Community Disparities in Southeast Wisconsin.
Undergraduate and graduate students from Marquette are invited to join medical students from MCW in this “match-making” workshop intended to connect the skills and energy of students interested in global health with the needs and opportunities of local organizations. After hearing a “pitch” from Milwaukee area organizations from different sectors, students will have the chance to sit and discuss concrete research, volunteer, project or work opportunities with three of the organizations represented.
Among the organizations participating:
- City of Milwaukee Health Department
- International Learning Center, a program of Neighborhood House of Milwaukee
- Sebastian Family Psychology Practice
- Milwaukee Center for Independence (MCFI)
- Walker’s Point Community Clinic
- Shriner’s Children’s Hospital
- United Community Center
