Meet the Moment: Join Us at the 2022 Global Health Landscape Symposium
Last year, as we prepared for the annual Global Health Landscape Symposium, I was still new to my role within the organization and “virtual” remained the order of the day. A lot has changed in the past 12 months. I could not be more excited about seeing many of you in person for the first time in several years as we gather together in Washington, D.C. on December 7 and 8th.
Needless to say, the intervening years since the last in-person Symposium have been a tumultuous time. That’s why this year’s convening is intended to be a true stock taking. Despite the enormous cost of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have seen great progress and potential as we endeavored to respond to it. How can we apply what we’ve learned in order to drive the field forward? That question is at the center of this year’s Symposium. Our goal is to use this time to identify answers and map out a path to progress.
A wealth of compelling session submissions allowed us to construct a powerful, two-day agenda. We encourage you to take a look and begin planning your experience. Dr. Denise Cardo recently confirmed that she will be joining us as a keynote speaker. Dr. Cardo is the director of the Division of Healthcare Quality Promotion, National Center for Emerging and Zoonotic Infectious Diseases, at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. We will have more exciting updates on speakers and panels as we get closer to the event.
This year’s convening will be a time for deep discussion and contemplation. But it will also be an opportunity for celebration as Global Health Council kicks off its 50th anniversary. At the Symposium, we will have the chance to hear from past Board members and others about GHC’s accomplishments and what this community can achieve together, going forward.
All in all, this year’s Landscape Symposium is shaping up to be a really exciting event. Stay tuned for more details. In the meantime, we encourage you to consider becoming a sponsor and, of course, register soon.
