About

The Center for Global Health’s annual symposium is the Center’s best opportunity to celebrate student accomplishments, experience, and learning as well as to advance opportunities for student-faculty collaboration in research.  Held each fall, the symposium is designed to bring together scholars and faculty from all disciplines who work together to discover interdisciplinary, innovative approaches to global health.

Each year we feature a nationally recognized keynote speaker with a unique perspective on global health.  We are proud to note that Kate Flatley, UVA Law School Graduate (2008) and Center for Global Health Scholar Alum, is this year’s keynote speaker.  Kate is the Founder and Executive Director of the Women’s Justice Initiative (WJI) in Patzun, Guatemala.  WJI works to empower Guatemalan women to address inequality and gender violence.  Kate leads WJI’s work in rural communities where women face extreme poverty, high rates of gender inequality, and have little or no access to social services.
