Addressing global challenges in a spirit of cooperation and collaboration was the prevailing theme of the 7th McDonnell Academy International Symposium, co-hosted by Washington University in St. Louis and Tsinghua University held in Beijing Oct. 11-14.
More than 400 attendees, from 35 McDonnell Academy partners around the world, converged to discuss innovative approaches to address issues such as public health, aging, energy and the environment and agriculture. Administrators, faculty, students, and representatives from the public and private sectors contributed to the program and participated in the dialogue.
Eleni Gaveras, McDonnell Scholar and NIMH T32 Pre-Doctoral Fellow of the Center for Mental Health Services Research at the Brown School, presented “Self-Stigma Interventions for Persons Living with Serious Mental Illness: A Global Systematic Review”, co-authored by Christopher Weatherly, another Pre-Doctoral NIMH T32 Fellow.
