Welcome to the Glasgow branch of Medsin UK! Within the national network, we are a group of dedicated, hard working, enthusiastic and energetic students all passionate about tackling health inequalities both within Glasgow and beyond.
Like most branches we work in three ways: advocacy, action and education. For this year we've got lots of plans, so watch this space!

A series of lectures and workshops focussing on the impact that conflict has on health. Delivered by students, professionals and academics from a wide range of discplines including Medicine, Engineering and Politics.
