The 5th Annual Global Health Conference will emphasize how individuals have unique perspectives, and through an integrated approach we can inspire innovative solutions to mold our future.  Innovation is born through collaborative efforts when a one-dimensional plan grows into a multifaceted solution.  Innovation has the power to provide pragmatic solutions to everyday problems in developing world and represents an image of how to bridge the gap between entrepreneurs, scientists and philanthropists.  It is critical to increase cohesion in these fields to inspire political infrastructure, scientific development and practical business plans while maintaining a commitment to equity.  The task at hand requires integration of these tandem components; using them to facilitate change, harnessing this innovative power and using it to combat inequities in health.  

Dr. Richard Heinzl, founder of the North American Chapter of Doctors Without Borders, will be giving the keynote address on Friday at 7:00 pm in the Henderson Living Center. Check in for the main portion of the conference will occur on Saturday morning from 9:00 - 9:30 a.m. in the Henderson lobby.
