This event is designed for all providers— community, academic, medical missions, nonprofits, NGOs, to discuss this new era in global health and what we can all learn from each other to provide the best care globally. Topics will range from refugee and humanitarian response to surgery and HIV PEP. There will be panel discussions on best practices for short term medical trips, ethics in the COVID-19 pandemic, and health and racial inequalities as well as innovative workshops.
