GlobeMed at MIT is proud to invite you to our first conference, where we explore the importance of a grassroots initiatives approach to global health. We have some great speakers lined up, as you'll see on the itinerary listed below.
We hope that this event will serve as a great chance to learn from those seasoned in the field, a forum for the exchange of ideas, and an excellent networking opportunity. While the event is geared towards Boston-area students and local global health professionals, it is open to the public and we encourage anyone interested to attend! The conference is free of charge.
We ask that you register no later than January 31st via this form. Please register ASAP as we will be forced to close registration should we reach capacity.
