2019 Global NCD Symposium

The 2019 Global NCD Symposium was held on April 9 this year from 12PM to 5PM in the Anna Baetjer Room. The symposium hosted many fruitful discussions pertaining to the epidemiology and treatment of non-communicable diseases in low- and middle-income countries. The annual symposium is a chance for researchers and collaborators in the field of non-communicable diseases to showcase their research efforts and findings in low and middle income countries (LMICs). Join us next year to take part in a great opportunity for students and faculty to discuss innovative research topics and examine the connection between LMIC research and education.
