Immersion Day is the cornerstone of the GHC19 vision. 

Delegates will be thrown into the deep-end, immersing themselves in all different facets of global health through hands-on, practical work. Whether it’s doing mindful meditation, touring a community-run garden and café, or a make-up workshop with drag queens, Immersion Day promises something for everyone. Our delegates will walk away with real-life experiences in the world of global health, having produced actionable knowledge and tangible skills to enact change in their own pocket of the universe.
