At a time of global economic hardship, and when global health inequities are even more pronounced, our global health programs, services and research need to be more impactful than ever. Are we actually making a difference? Are our programs and services having the individual, social, economic and political impacts that are needed today? Is our research yielding the required evidence? Can we demonstrate this impact? Can we identify when they are not? What are the key elements of effective programs? What lessons can we learn? Our 2022 Annual Conference will explore these questions and the global health impact North Carolina's organizations, and those based nationally and globally, are having at the individual, community and global levels.

This program will provide an opportunity for thought leaders, innovators, policymakers, students, and researchers to share their experiences and questions through a mix of keynote speakers, panels, workshops, and poster sessions. 


We hope you will join us!
