Global Health Conference Midwest (GHCM) is an opportunity for professionals, faculty, and students to connect, collaborate, engage and learn about pertinent and emerging topics in global health. GHCM represents professionals, graduate students, undergraduates, academic faculty, community organizations, and community members. The purpose of the conference is to catalyze action in global health by providing insight into global health issues, promoting a common voice for those interested in global health, fostering talent, and facilitating interdisciplinary partnerships.
Our mission is a multidisciplinary effort to address health disparities among marginalized populations nationally and internationally. Through education, advocacy, and service, we aim to raise awareness of global issues by engaging individuals and communities to partner with those who are made vulnerable.
