Global Health in Our Own Backyard: Controversies, Initiatives, and Innovations for Our Local Underserved Populations

Ruth and Tristram Colket, Jr. Translational Research Building, 3501 Civic Center Blvd., Philadelphia, PA 19104  

Oct 4, 2019-Oct 5, 2019

The 11th Annual CHOP Global Health Conference will explore the intersections between domestic, local and international global pediatric health to better reach the underserved here at home. We will take inspiration from innovative programs in the U.S. and from around the world, and think critically about how to apply both South-North and national lessons to provide better, more equitable care in the United States.

Attendees will heighten their awareness of existing disparities and sharpen their skills to both advocate and care for underrepresented patients. Stories of challenges and solutions, keynotes, breakout sessions, discussions, oral poster presentations, and a debate will equip each of us to be more effective providers for all of our patients, especially those who struggle most to access care.
