The North Carolina Global Health Alliance's 10th Annual Conference will take place on November 1, 2023 at NC State University’s McKimmon Center in Raleigh, NC. At this year's event, our global health community will come together to evaluate what it means to have Resilience in the Global Health Ecosystem. Through this theme, we will reflect on the unique components of our resilient global health ecosystem; both those that bolster our resiliency as individuals and also those that strengthen our resiliency as a community in the face of an ever-evolving global landscape. The last few years have forced us all to “pivot” time and time again, and this conference is an invitation to our global health community to take stock of all that has changed and evaluate what has worked that we should bring forward and what has not served us that we should leave behind.

This conference is a highly curated intentional space for innovative thinkers to come together to address some of the world's biggest health issues in an inclusive, creative, and bold environment. It will be a space for learning, sharing, reflecting, and connecting, and will serve as just the first step for countless conversations that we will bring forward into the coming year.

Speakers include leaders and visionaries from academia, biopharmaceutical companies, contract research organizations, government, medicine, NGOs, and philanthropy. Our three sub-themes will allow us

to dive deep into what makes our Global Health Ecosystem Resilient and how we can strengthen that resilience through the choices we make as individuals and as a community.

  1. Expanding Global Health Partnerships: Global health has expanded to include a broader, more diverse range of partners. Who are the partners at this new global health table and how do we work together in this new environment? Who is not at the table that needs to be and how do we include them?

  2. Adapting the Way We Work: The workplace is different than it was five years ago – and so are we! How have we adapted to our new environment? What is working for us and how do we let go of what isn’t?  

  3. Deepening Community Relationships: Localization faces countless challenges. How do we overcome them for a more equitable, collaborative, and sustainable approach to global health? 

Join us as we come together in-person and learn from one another's big triumphs and big hiccups - We can't wait to see you there!
