RWJMS Annual Global Health Fair
December 5, 2018 @ 5:00 pm
The Office of Global Health at Robert Wood Johnson Medical School presents its Annual Global Health Fair, featuring poster presentations and keynote speaker XinQi Dong, MD, MPH, director of the Institute for Health, Health Care Policy, and Aging Research, and Henry Rutgers Distinguished Professor of Population Health Sciences.
Dr. Dong, a renowned population epidemiologist and health services researcher, has been a strong advocate for advancing population health issues in underrepresented communities worldwide. He has leveraged the principles of community-based participatory research to conduct multiple large-scale longitudinal population-based studies in the United States and China aimed to investigate the intersections of violence, resilience and health outcomes. His research and advocacy have been recognized by many national and international organizations, including awards by the American Public Health Association, American Geriatric Society, Gerontological Society of America and International Congress of Gerontology and Geriatrics. He was the first geriatrician to receive the National Physician Advocacy Merit Award by the Institute on Medicine as a Profession. This year, Dong was elected to the prestigious American Society of Clinical Investigation.
All faculty, staff, and students who participated in a global health initiative within the past year are welcome to submit abstracts for possible inclusion in the poster presentation. The deadline is November 10. For more information, or to submit an abstract, contact Christina Rozario at 848-932-0233 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
