The 2018 Los Angeles Global Health Conference, “Looking In, Looking Out: Balancing Global and Local Priorities in the Current Political Climate,” will be held at UCLA in Covel Commons Feb. 3, 2018.
Last year, more than 400 individuals from 25+ institutions across Southern California attended the second annual LAGHC. Each year the conference aims to bring together individuals from various backgrounds for discussion that informs and equips future global health leaders, especially in the current political climate.
This year’s keynote speaker, Mark Dybul, MD, was one of the founding architects in the formation of the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR). He served as Chief Medical officer, Assistant, Deputy and Acting Director, and then was appointed as PEPFAR’s leader in 2006, becoming U.S. Global AIDS Coordinator, with the rank of Ambassador at the level of an Assistant Secretary of State. He served until early 2009 and most recently he has worked as the Executive Director of the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria.
If you are a student passionate about global health looking for a professional platform through which you can share your work, LAGHC has opportunities for you to present your research (as a poster or TED-style talk), tell your global health story or showcase a media project.
