First Annual Global Health Design Challenge Symposium: Integrated Technology Solutions to Advance Global Health

As part of an effort to develop and test novel solutions to global health challenges, Beyond Traditional Borders and the James A. Baker III Institute for Public Policy, both of Rice University, are sponsoring a special symposium on global health technology design challenges and opportunities. The goal is to lay the groundwork for building a global health research and education community between Rice University, the Texas Medical Center and community stakeholders, emphasizing the multidisciplinary nature of our approach to seeking technology solutions to health issues of global importance.

This program was supported in part by a grant to Rice University, in support of Dr. Rebecca Richards-Kortun from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute through the HHMI Professors Program.
