Over the weekend of Feb 13-14th, the McMaster Global Health Office hosted a case competition to choose a team to represent McMaster in the Emory Morningside Global Health Case Competition (ECC). The ECC will host 59 teams from international universities and spend a week developing recommendations for a global health case. Teams from across the world will compete for cash prizes and have the opportunity to network with each other and with professionals who volunteer to serve as judges.

The Making of The Arctic - A Global Health Perspective

The Arctic is an interesting place. To some people it is a frontier or hinterland, others may imagine a polar bear on an ice floe and to those who live there, the Arctic is home. 

As a student in the MSc in Global Health at McMaster University writing my master’s thesis, the Arctic is my area of research. Over the past year, I’ve immersed myself in literature published by Inuit organizations to understand Inuit perspectives on Arctic Ocean governance. That’s how I became involved with The Arctic - A Global Health Perspective.
