Student International Health Initiatives (SIHI) is a club dedicated to raising awareness for local and global health issues. Our main initiative is an annual health conference meant to educate, promote awareness, and open discussion regarding health issues to the McMaster and greater Hamilton community. Within the conference, we host workshops with professors and graduate students at McMaster to educate students about issues pertaining to health equity and access to healthcare. We also offer case competitions and abstract writing competitions for students to further explore public health issues that they’re passionate about and create innovative solutions to present to a panel of judges. SIHI hopes to spark a passion in McMaster students to learn more about healthcare issues faced globally and use their talents to make an impact!
