2018 Triangle Global Health Annual Conference: Looking Toward the Future: Innovation for Global Health Impact
Talley Student Union, North Carolina State University
Raleigh, North Carolina
The 2014 Triangle Global Health Conference explored how to bridge the gap between innovations in research and program implementation. The 2018 Triangle Global Health Annual Conference will bring together global health leaders to address the significant ways that we can utilize innovative ideas to have a positive impact on the communities we serve. This year, our conference will address innovation from a broader and more comprehensive viewpoint.
The conference will showcase examples of innovation as well as a variety of definitions of “innovation”: Innovation can be a new idea, program, or more-effective device or process. Innovation can also be used to design, implement and evaluate more effective solutions.
Attendees and presenters will explore expanded notions of innovation that are inclusive of, but far broader than technology alone. Sessions will delve into various types of innovation including global health program innovation, medical technology, mHealth and innovative business models.
Submissions for panel discussions, workshops, and story-telling are due by July 11, 2018 at 5 PM ET. Poster submissions are due by August 15, 2018 at 5 pm ET.
