Grand Rounds: Women’s Care in Global Health Panel – Drs. Jennifer McIntosh, Allie Linton and Seema Menon @ Froedtert Hospital – Delfs/Klieger Conference Room
Nov 29 @ 9:00 am – 10:00 am

MCW’s Global Health week is November 27-December 1, 2017. It was created to:
1) Increase the visibility of faculty’s global health activities in community engagement, clinical care, education, and research.
2) Raise awareness of local and international partnerships that are addressing global health issues from neighborhoods to nations.

The Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology has a long history of global health involvement. Current faculty members have traveled to provide global health care for women in multiple countries. These experiences have enriched their careers and provided unique experiences. Residents are encouraged to partake in experiences abroad during their training as well.

Panel Objectives:

– Review the variety of experiences that OBGYN practitioners have had abroad
– Listen to personal stories of meaningful experiences during global health work in women’s health
– Learn about the professional impact one gets from traveling abroad and providing health care
– Hear what an ideal vision of global health education in residency looks like from a variety of practitioners
