If you're interested in Politics and policy-making, ethics and law, academia, I would definitely suggest attending this event organised by our lovely Laidlaw scholar Chandini!

"The Interdisciplinary Forum on Global Surgery, taking place on March 26-28 is the first of its kind aimed at undergraduate students and will include a range of talks from 6 leading speakers in the fields of global surgery and health, innovation, engineering, politics, ethics, law and advocacy, and along with that a hackathon where attendees will be split into teams to discuss and later present their solution to a global health problem. Through this event, we are attempting to fundraise for an international charity, Lifebox that is working towards making surgery and anaesthesia safe for all."
Incision UK and Lifebox GSA UK are delighted to invite you to a free, online interdisciplinary forum on the 27th and 28th of March 2021 for 2 days of talks and a hackathon, all starting with a documentary screening on Friday evening!

At the end of the meeting, each group will have the opportunity to present their work to the rest of the audience and our panel of judges who will choose the best innovation. The winning team will receive a prize, certificates and feasible projects will also be considered for mentorship!
