White Saviorism and Decolonizing Global Health
September 28, 2021 @ 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm
White Saviorism and Decolonizing Global Health with Anna Kalbarczyk, DrPh, MPH, a global health researcher and practitioner from Johns Hopkins University with international working experience in South America, Asia and Africa.
This seminar will explore the meaning of saviorism in global health training with a focus on historical underpinnings, the role of academic institutions and how they can influence a paradigm shift. This seminar will also consider the catch-22 in global health training – to get experience, you need to have experience – and how this has reinforced problematic practices.
Kalbarczyk currently serves as the assistant director of the Johns Hopkins Center for Global Health and holds a faculty appointment in the Department of International Health at the Bloomberg School of Public Health.
The webinar is co-hosted by the UW Madison Global Health Innovation Club.
