The Center for Globalization recently hosted its first annual Global Luncheon honoring the Scholarly Activity Grant recipients. 
The grants are available to students, residents and faculty interested in pursuing international activities such as global research in collaboration with BCM faculty and international partner institutions.

Dr. Paul Klotman, president and CEO of BCM, gave the opening remarks congratulating the awardees. He spoke about the unique opportunity BCM students, residents and faculty have at BCM.

"The Center for Globalization provides specific opportunities for those who are interested in learning more about global health," he said. "The grants the center provides are important resources that help move education forward, not only for students, but also for our practicing doctors."

Dr. Paul Klotman and Dr. Bobby Kapur talk with Wally Wilson, a BCM board member whose $5 million gift launched the Center for Globalization.
