About the Symposium:

The symposium will explore three major themes, beginning with the movement of patients across borders. Speakers will discuss reproductive tourism, the international organ trade, and migrant health, as well as the medical and public health implications of infectious diseases. The second major theme will center on public health responses to the movement of diseases. The panel will discuss public health preparedness and first hand experience with H1N1 and Ebola. The last major theme will focus on the movement of providers across borders. Speakers will discuss the movement of providers seeking medical education across borders, and the transactions and accreditation necessary for the delivery of cross-border health care.
