Looking In, Looking Out: Balancing Global and Local Priorities in the Current Political Climate

The UCLA Center for World Health and the USC Institute for Global Health are working together to host the third annual Los Angeles Global Health Conference (LAGHC).  The conference serves an exciting and interactive educational forum where students, along with faculty and community members, join together to learn more about global health research and emerging solutions to improve the world's health. 

This year's conference theme will be Looking In, Looking Out: Balancing Global and Local Priorities in the Current Political Climate, and will be hosted on Saturday, February 3, 2018 at UCLA.  The conference is planned and implemented solely by students with mentorship and financial support from the UCLA Center for World Health and the USC Institute for Global Health. The conference planners are a diverse mix of undergraduate, graduate, and professional students from both UCLA and USC, as well as Claremont Mckenna and UC Riverside.

The students have already secured an excellent keynote speaker for the conference– Dr. Mark Dybul, Professor of Medicine at Georgetown University, former Executive Director or the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria, and one of the founding architects in the formation of the U.S. President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR).
