The Global Health Program in the Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry has hosted an annual fundraiser, previously called the "Rich Man Poor Man Dinner," at St. Basil's Cultural Centre for many years.  The event helps fund residents and faculty from our international partner sites to come to the University of Alberta for further training; it also helps provide funding for the activities of the Medical Students Association (MSA) and the Students Invested in Health Association (SIHA), along with providing an excellent opportunity for learners, faculty and others with an interest in Global Health to interact and mingle during a fun evening. There will be silent auction which will include items such as student artwork and sport event tickets.  Proceeds support community development programs in Tanzania. 

Attendees will enjoy a meal, entertainment from our students and a keynote address by Dr. Abdullah Saleh.  Dr. Saleh is a Pediatric General Surgeon and Trauma Director, Stollery Children's Hospital and Director, Office of Global Surgery.  He is also the Chief Executive Director of Innovative Canadians for Change (ICChange). He was one of Edify Magazine's Top 40 under 40 for 2020 and was selected as such because of "his commitment to improving the quality of life and security of vulnerable people around the world through both his work as a Pediatric General Surgeon and ICChange". 

Make up a table of eight with your friends and plan to attend.  We hope to see you there!
