Global Health & Social Medicine Students Undergraduate Conference March 9th

Led by King’s College London Global Health & Social Medicine undergraduate students, this conference is an opportunity to bring together years 10-13 students with our undergraduates and academics in our Thames-side university campus adjacent to Somerset House.

Attendees will have the opportunity to participate in seminars led by renowned professors, including Professor Nikolas Rose, Professor Bronwyn Parry and Dr Annette Rid; hear researchers talk about their work overseas and attend a showcase of work from our undergraduate, postgraduate and academic team.

Attendees may be interested in studying a degree that looks at health as more than a medical matter as the world works to address key issues such as an ageing population, global mental health and pandemics. This is a chance to find out more and interact with current students and academics.

The event is free. Lunch will be provided.
