Annual Events

Smallholder farms provide at least 50% of the agricultural output for domestic consumption in most low- and middle-income countries. Smaller than two acres in size, smallholder farms account for about 70 percent of all farms. Yet, the 500+ million households that run these farms withstand the worst food insecurity, especially in the Global South. Limited access to capital, markets, land, technology, and training, as well as political stressors, gender inequities, and, more recently, climate change, amplify the vulnerability of smallholder farm families.
The 1st Annual Global Health Day was organized by the UB School of Public Health and Health Professions' Office of Global Health Initiatives in 2010. This annual event brings together scholars from different disciplines to discuss relevant global health topics. Previous Global Health Day topics have included: Women's and Children's Nutrition in Emergency Settings, Perspectives on Humanitarian Crises Around the World, Extinguishing the Tobacco Epidemic, Treating Neglected Infections, and Air Pollution Across the Lifespan. This annual event is co-sponsored by the UB School of Public Health and Health Professions' Office of Global Health Initiatives and the Community for Global Health Equity. It is traditionally held on the Friday of National Public Health Week. 

Co-sponsored by the University at Buffalo’s Community for Global Health Equity and School of Public Health and Health Professions’ Office of Global Health Initiatives, the annual Refugee Health Summit unites clinicians, resettlement representatives, community health workers, researchers, students, municipal leaders, and refugees. The 5 Annual WNY Refugee Health Summit will highlight the innovative university-community partnerships that have resulted in research, programming, and solutions to improve health and wellbeing for refugees.
