The 2020 system-wide UC Global Health Day conference marks the 10th anniversary of the UC Global Health Institute. The conference showcases outstanding research, training and outreach taking place across the University of California and is an amazing opportunity for UC students, fellows, faculty, staff and visiting scholars to gather and discuss their work.  Interdisciplinary by nature and collaborative in spirit, global health efforts encompass a range of academic topics and disciplines and work by scholars committed to improving human and ecosystem health around the globe.

This year’s theme, Sustaining Communities and Climates for Health, reflects UC's commitment to making health a sustainable global reality in the face of multiplying and convergent crises, and doing so by bridging community research and action with the vast diversity of local and global influences on health: from the molecular, genomic and ecological to the planetary, political and economic. UC Global Health Day 2020 will bring together partners, leaders and young career professionals for a day of knowledge sharing around these and other urgent global health challenges. 

Make plans now to join us on the stunning UC Santa Cruz campus in a redwood grove overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Santa Cruz is conveniently located on the central coast and accessible by air and major highways. 

We are now accepting submissions of abstracts for poster presentations and breakout sessions

Topics may range from basic to translational sciences, technology to social entrepreneurship, health equity to community-based health planning and practice, women’s health to global health philanthropy and policy. We seek a broad range of topics to feature the rich diversity of work being done in global health across geographies and disciplines throughout the University of California system.
