Global Health Week: Neighborhoods to Nations

Milwaukee, WI US
December 1, 2014 to December 5, 2014

The inaugural Global Health Week took place in November 2011 as the Office of Global Health was completing a three year strategic plan and formally launched their programmatic efforts with a week-long event.
 
The objectives of Global Health Week are:
 • Increase the visibility of faculty’s global health activities in education, research, patient care and community engagement.
• Raise awareness of local and international partnerships that are addressing global health issues.
 
All events are co-sponsored by MCW departments, offices and centers. Topic areas intentionally cross all of our missions of clinical care, research, education and community engagement.
 
Since 2011 the week’s events have hosted nearly 1,800 participants.
 
Global Health Week is an opportunity to co-promote the diverse communities our faculty, staff, and partners are serving to advance health. We anticipate that together, we can continue to share credible, collaborative, and mutually beneficial efforts in global health from neighborhoods to nations.

Attend a Special Benefit Concert for Doctors Without Borders’ Ebola Efforts
 
The “Sierra Leone’s Refugee All Stars” formed in West African refugee camps in the midst of their civil war, the band has gone on to perform on some of the world’s most prestigious stages. On tour in the US when the Ebola crisis hit, the All Stars have opted to stay on the road to demonstrate how the redeeming power of music can carry us through hardship with our sense of joy and optimism intact. The evening will begin at 7 p.m. with an informal and interactive conversation with the band and local community members about the current Ebola situation in West Africa and the musical performance begins at 8 p.m. at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Helene Zelazo Center for the Performing Arts, 2419 E. Kenwood Blvd, Milwaukee. Admission is $10 cash at the door.
