GHEARD Training @ Brown Interest

Brown Division of Global Emergency Medicine is assessing interest in hosting a facilitator training(s) at Brown in 2023-2024 (note: attendance would not be restricted to Brown University affiliates).  Our hope is to train facilitators who may then cascade the training onwards to their own networks, colleagues and trainees. All levels of training and career stage are welcome.

The training will be utilizing the newly launched Global Health Education for Equity, Anti-Racism and Decolonization (GHEARD) curriculum.

GHEARD is a free modular curriculum for global health trainees and providers that seeks to prompt critical reflection and analysis and create important (and sometimes uncomfortable) conversations across global health training spaces around inequity, racism, systems of oppression and structural violence, and the legacies of colonialism and neo-colonialism on the field by highlighting unHEARD and under-represented voices and perspectives in global health. The ultimate goal is to center the voices of our expert colleagues in resource-constrained communities and to empower global health trainees and providers from resource-wealthy settings to work alongside their expert partners to reimagine and work toward a world where all children and their families have access to the health care and basic services they need to thrive. This curriculum is published by the American Academy of Pediatrics and Consortium of Universities for Global Health.

The curriculum is free and open access. If you are interested in attending a facilitator’s training at Brown, implementing the curriculum in your group, and/or or have questions, please complete this form or contact Dr. Stephanie Garbern
