About This Event

A critical nexus exists between migration, climate change, and global health. Escalating conflicts and climate crises have caused displacement to become a harsh reality for millions, exacerbating global health challenges and perpetuating cycles of poverty. How can we address this web of challenges shaping our global landscape to foster a more sustainable and equitable future? Join Ibrahim Abubakar and Maya Prabhu for a discussion that will shed light on the multifaceted impacts and potential solutions to these issues.

This event is in partnership with University of Chicago’s Center for Global Health in the Biological Sciences Division and the Susan and Richard Kiphart Center for Global Health and Social Development in the Crown Family School of Social Work, Policy, and Practice.
