2013: USC at the 66th World Health Assembly

A group of nine MPH students representing the USC Institute for Global Health attended the 66th World Health Assembly in Geneva, Switzerland in late May 2013. 

During their visit, the students interviewed delegates, live-tweeted their observations and blogged about their experiences, with Heather Wipfli, associate director of the USC Institute for Global Health, coordinating the group. They also met with health organizations in the area, including the Global Fund, GAVI Alliance, World Economic Forum and the WHO. Storify
