World Health Summit: Regional Meeting
May 8, 2017 @ 8:00 am - May 9, 2017 @ 5:00 pm
Health and Healthcare Delivery in Pluralistic Societies
The Université de Montréal and the Institut de recherches cliniques de Montréal (IRCM) / Montreal Clinical Research Institute are proud to announce that they will be hosting the 1st World Health Summit (WHS) of the M8 Alliance to be held in North America. The world leaders in global health will be attending this prestigious event, including over 800 researchers, doctors, industry leaders, decision-makers, government members and civil society actors from around the world.
Based on the theme of Health and Healthcare Delivery in Pluralistic Societies, this interdisciplinary event will focus on the question of human diversity in the practice, education, research and public policy pertaining to health.
In pluralistic societies that welcome diversity, such as ours, many factors will impact health and the provision of healthcare, including globalization, immigration, social and economic inequalities, lifestyle, and culture. We believe that it is our mission, as scholars, to turn our attention to this important phenomenon and to analyze it in depth.
This event is one of the most important of its kind in Canada. It is with the utmost enthusiasm that we invite you to attend.
