**Pre-registration closes on April 25, 2018. Pre-registered attendees must pay registration fees in full no later than April 25, 2018, to avoid paying an additional $25.00 on-site registration.


During this half-day conference, you will hear from global health experts from ETSU, Brown University, Akron Children’s Hospital, and the University of Minnesota.  Additionally, several of our international partners from St. Damien Children’s Hospital in Haiti will be participating in a panel discussion on global health issues.  The conference will explore the connection between local and global health, preparation for global health trips, the role of the inter-disciplinary team in global health, and research in an international setting.  This conference is ideal for both students interested in undertaking global health work, as well as faculty and other individuals with prior experience in international work.
