McMaster University is strengthening partnerships in China, as a delegation from Guanghua International Education Association (GIEA) visited campus this week to explore partnership opportunities in research, education, and practice development in health sciences.

GIEA is an organization committed to international cooperation in scientific research, and is a leader in the area of international nursing education. The purpose of the visit to McMaster was to engage in a learning exchange and to discuss innovations and future collaborations in health sciences education, specifically in the areas of nursing, rehabilitation science, aging and community health, and respiratory health.

Recently, GIEA partnered with the Government of Alberta to work together on energy and environmental research, marking their commitment to tackling climate change.

“China is becoming a key player in the global health arena, and by forging ties with institutions like Guanghua, we are opening doors to new and important collaborations,” explains Andrea Baumann, Associate Vice-President, Global Health, and director of the MSc Global Health program.
