Upcoming CUGH Events
Syria has been devastated by conflict. The Academy of Health Sciences in Syria will provide an overview of how Medical Higher Education in the Middle East is affected by war and the effects of the Arab Spring.

Following the cancelation of the 8th Annual Symposium on Global Cancer Research due to the coronavirus pandemic, National Cancer Institute’s Center for Global Health has partnered with the Consortium of Universities for Global Health to host a one-hour webinar for selected oral abstract presentations, in order to share these timely and relevant research findings with the global health community. Abstracts were selected in a peer-review process based on overall score and relevance to priority topic areas; and reflect creativity and diversity of global cancer research and control programs.
A Note from our Executive Director:
As you know, we canceled our 2020 global health conference due to the COVID-19 pandemic. A remarkable slate of speakers and topics were booked for the meeting. We did not want to lose this opportunity and were determined to see how we could share the knowledge that was going to be presented with global health practitioners worldwide. Thus, we created this eBook which contains some of the presentations that were slated for the conference.
Congratulations to Dr. Caryl Waggett and Dr. Kathryn H. Jacobsen, Chairs of our Subcommittee on Master's and Undergraduate Degrees in Global Health, for their recent publication in Annals of Global Health. The study describes the types of US institutions that are supporting undergraduate major and minor global health programs and related fields as well as those of public health and related programs. Other efforts are underway to explore GHS offerings in other regions of the world.
