    The JW LEE CGM participated the Consortium of Universities for Global Health (CUGH) Annual Conference, which was held in Chicago back in March 2019.

    Jayoung Park, Jieun Lee, Sugy Choi, the research associates, and Dr. Woong Han Kim, the Director of JW LEE CGM participated the conference to exhibit a booth to promote the center’s work in global surgery programs, as well as engage and network with other institutions to discuss the issues we face in global health and the ways to collaborate with one another.

    Dr. Kim was also invited to talk at the panel “How to support each other in global surgery?” Dr. Kim gave his insight on the importance of understanding the culture and communicating with the local medical staffs, community workers, and patients when undertaking surgery projects in low and middle-income countries.
