The Future of Global Health 2016

April 14, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm


April 14, 2016
6:00 – 9:00 pm

The Hamilton Live 
Washington, DC


Hosted by Global Health Council and the Global Health Fellows Program II, The Future of Global Health 2016 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 TFGH16 is to foster connections and increase knowledge through conversations among new and established members of the global health community. This year’s event will focus on the global health workplace – the challenges, solutions and skills needed to advance progress on the global health issues of our time. 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. Learn more about TFGH here.
