Los Angeles Global Health Conference

Re-Designing Global Health: Innovations and Sustainability

The Los Angeles Global Health Conference (LAGHC) is an annual global health conference hosted in Southern California. Organized by students from local universities including UCLA, USC and Claremont University, LAGHC seeks to educate, connect and engage members of the Los Angeles community in addressing the health disparities both in our backyards and around the world.

Home to people from more than 140 countries speaking 224 different languages, Los Angeles’s rich cultural diversity makes it an ideal place to examine the current status of world health. LAGHC brings people together across academia, NGOs, business, community organizations and the public sector to discuss pressing health issues impacting our world’s wellbeing.

This year’s theme is “Re-Designing Global Health: Innovations and Sustainability,” which highlights myriad current global health challenges that we face today, including climate change, the implementation of the SDGs and the need for new health care media and technologies. We are excited to announce that Dr. Vanessa Kerry, CEO and co-founder of Seed Global Health; and Molly Winter, program director of Recode, will join us as our keynote speakers.
