The Global Health Association @ RIT will host its first regional conference on Innovations in Global Health to showcase humanitarian efforts on campus and to connect with other researchers in the area.

The Innovations in Global Health conference will take place from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Feb. 23, in the Louise Slaughter Hall/CIMS conference center and will center on biomedical solutions, design and technology and social determinants of health. Keynote speaker Kathleen Sienko, associate professor of mechanical and biomedical engineering at University of Michigan, will focus on design, development and evaluation of medical devices with input from the intended users.

The Innovations in Global Health conference gives RIT researchers a platform for showcasing their work. Their projects address issues like infant mortality in Honduras, childhood anemia in Ghana and sexual victimization in refugee camps, and find solutions for sustainable sanitation, clean drinking water and access to prosthetics in developing countries, among other topics.
