2021 Global Health Research Showcase

The Global Health Research Showcase is a celebration of research and experiences led by Duke global health students. While travel was once again limited due to the COVID-19 pandemic, students were still able to complete amazing and impactful work. Students were once again able to share their work in person at the Tenth Annual Global Health Research Showcase, with 41 global health students presenting research findings from 19 countries.

Crowds gathered around student posters

Students have also created project webpages showcasing their work. Start your virtual journey by exploring some of the student projects that will be featured at our Showcase event. These projects represent a range of global health topics and methods. Be sure to continue exploring more projects below. View all projects
