The International Health Interest Group (IHIG) will be sponsoring Global Health Day on Friday, May 25. There will be several speakers presenting topics on acute malnutrition, global HIV, international medical experience, and global food safety and security. The first lecture begins at 11:00am, with the second lecture beginning at noon and ending at 1:00pm. Both lectures will be held in Meiling Hall, room 160. Food will be provided from Lavash Café, Aab India, and Cazuela’s Grill.
As part of Global Health Day, the 2012 Ride for World Health (R4WH) cyclists will be traveling through Columbus. The group of riders comprising medical students, health care professionals, and community representatives, take part in a 3,700 mile bicycle ride from San Diego, California to Washington D.C. to promote education and awareness of global and domestic health concerns as well as raise needed funds for Louie's Kids and MANA, and SOIL. During the day-long event, cyclists will be on hand to share experiences about their ride so far.
Individuals will have the opportunity to join the R4WH the following day, May 26, with the Solidarity Bike Ride. The Solidarity Ride is an opportunity for the community to get involved with the cross-country journey without having to commit to two months of riding. The ride will begin at Roll: Lane Avenue (located at 1510 W. Lane Ave. in Upper Arlington, OH, 43221, Phone: 614-230-2222).
