In partnership with Georgetown University, Johns Hopkins University and the University of Pennsylvania, the Consortium of Universities for Global Health presented its fourth annual conference in Washington, DC on March 14-16, 2013.
Innovation, Implementation, and Impact was this year’s theme. Co-Chaired by Larry Gostin, faculty director of the O’Neill Institute, the conference convened leading academics, government officials, advocates and activists from around the world and across disciplines to identify the most pressing global health challenges and to apply an introspective lens to encourage continuing dialogue and cross-disciplinary solutions. Conference topics spanned the gamut of global health concerns, paying critical attention to health disparities for women and children, growing income inequality and health issues stemming from violence and conflict-torn regions.
