On behalf of our Scientific Committee, I want to invite you to what is set to be one of the premiere events in global health taking place this year in beautiful Cartagena, Colombia.
For nearly 8 years, Florida International University has partnered with organizations near and far to bring you the Global Health Conference of the Americas. The conference unites experts from all parts of the world to explore the global health challenges we face now and into the future. Together with our conference partners, we’ve created an agenda filled with seminars, workshops and networking opportunities designed to create a truly memorable experience for our attendees.
This year, the World Health Organization ended its declaration of COVID-19 as a global health emergency. As global health leaders, these past few years have cemented how critical it is for us to reflect and prepare for what the future might bring. Conferences like this one help us come together to develop recommendations that organizations and governments can implement to protect their communities. Together, we will explore topics like advances in immunizations, climate change, nutrition and obesity, environmental health, pandemic preparedness, Alzheimer’s disease, and so much more.
I want to personally thank our partners the Pediatric Society of Colombia, the Pan American Health Organization, Baylor College of Medicine, the Latin American Society of Pediatric Infectious Diseases, and the Global Health Institute at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and the USAID. This event would not be possible without their dedication and commitment to serving the greater good.
I hope that we will see each other soon in Colombia.
