Community and Global Health Seminar Series

The Center for Community and Global Health (CCGH) Seminar Series strives to expose the Stritch School of Medicine (SSOM) community as well as the larger community of Loyola’s Health Sciences Campus to fundamental concepts in Global Health and to committed Global Health practitioners who strive to incorporate Global Health into their careers. The Series is composed of: 

  • CCGH Supported Events, which invite professionals from multiple disciplines who have worked in various capacities under the umbrella of Global Health, both domestically and internationally. Speakers share their professional and personal path to Global Health involvement, as well as their ongoing projects.
  • Essential Topics Seminars, which concentrate on specific concerns encountered in the broad field of Global Health practice. Those who attend these seminars prepare through the completion of online modules and/or journal articles for a discussion-based review of the particular topics.

Both CCGH Supported Events and Essential Topics seminars are open to students, faculty and staff from within SSOM, the Marcella Niehoff School of Nursing, and the larger Health Sciences Campus.


Seminar Series events are advertised in the weekly CCGH Calendar and Announcements, which is emailed to all SSOM students. Others may request to be added to the weekly e-mail group by writing to


Seminar Series events are also posted to the LUMEN calendar.
