Hosted by Global Health Council and the Global Health Fellows Program II, The Future of Global Health 2017 is an event for global health unlike any other. It is a unique opportunity to step outside the usual panel discussion format and engage in meaningful conversation with peers and potential mentors.

The goal of TFGH17 is to foster connections and increase knowledge through conversations among new and established members of the global health community. The breadth of sectors – private, non-profit, government, academic and donor – will be represented among the event’s discussion group leaders, mentors and attendees.

This unconference will feature small group discussions and one-on-one mentoring sessions with senior global health professionals. A full list of mentors and bios is available hereLearn more about TFGH here.
