Attention Student Global Health Advocates!

Please join us on Sunday, September 26 for the Global Health Student (GHS) Conference. The conference, the third since its inception, will take place in conjunction with PIH’s 17th Annual Thomas J. White Symposium, held earlier that weekend. Planned and orchestrated by PIH’s 2010 summer interns, the event brings together student activists and speakers from many disciplines to discuss global advocacy efforts. Talks will focus on the ways in which students can access and affect change in global health.

This year’s featured speaker is PIH Medical Director Dr. Joia Mukherjee. The conference aims to educate, engage, and energize student involvement in global health advocacy. From large scale policy change efforts to everyday individual activism, a variety of panelists will explore pertinent issues in the field. With a better understanding of current priorities and challenges, students will be able to better translate collective energy into informed, change-making action.

Whether you are a high school student or a seasoned collegiate activist, this year’s GHS Conference will give you the tools to better understand and influence change in global health.
