Every year, the Global Health Program teams up with its partners at the School of Public Health and the Students Invested in Health Association (SIHA) to deliver the Rich Man, Poor Man fundraiser, the only fundraising event of the Office.  Funds raised support global health programs within the Faculty of Medicine & Dentistry; School of Public Health; Medical Students' Association and the Students Invested in Health Association.

Attendees enjoy a meal, entertainment from our students, a silent auction and a speech from the chosen keynote speaker. Distinguished speakers, such as Bob Wollard and Chief Wilton Littlechild have delivered keynote addresses. The 50/50 raffle supports the Medical Students’ Association Global Health Program and the Silent Auction, which includes items from student artwork to sport event tickets, supports the Student Invested in Health Association's (SIHA) program in Tanzania. Payments can be made by credit card, cash or cheque.

In keeping with the theme of global disparity, one person in eight will be randomly chosen to have the "Rich Man" dinner of prime rib.  The other guests will receive the "Poor Man" dinner much like the typical meals eaten by 90% of the world population.  This dinner will consist of delicious perogies and various side dishes.

The keynote speaker this year is Dr. Abdullah Saleh, Assistant Professor, Dept. of Surgery who will speak on "Cultivating Purpose and Nurturing Innovation".

Save the date, make up a table of eight with your friends and plan to attend.  We hope to see you there!
