WASHINGTON, DC (March 25, 2015) — Global Health Council (GHC) and the Public Health Institute’s Global Health Fellows Program (GHFP) II are co-hosting The Future of Global Health 2015 (TFGH15) on April 16, 2015 from 6:30 to 9:00 p.m. at The Hamilton Live in Washington, D.C. The goal of TFGH15 is to provide a casual and creative outlet for dialogue around global health issues between established senior-level professionals and emerging leaders in global health. The 2014 event drew more than 400 attendees.

Organizations interested in sponsorship opportunities are encouraged to contact GHC for all inquiries.

GHC’s Executive Director, Dr. Christine Sow, notes that “with TFGH15, our aim is to create a space where established mentors can exchange with young global health professionals around the critical skills needed to enter and excel in the field of global health.”

Dr. Sharon Rudy, Program Director of GHFP II, observes that TFGH15 is “an opportunity for experienced global health professionals to give back, and for young practitioners to strengthen their professional network while engaging in deeply meaningful conversations about important global health topics.”

TFGH15 will leverage the deep subject matter and technical expertise of a broad range of global health stakeholders to provide a unique opportunity for emerging professionals. Some of the most prestigious leaders in global health from the private, public and nonprofit sectors will lead small, interactive discussion groups around real life challenges. These groups will delve into a range of topics such as social entrepreneurship, gender equality and innovation.
