Event description

Description

MD Junior is excited to host the 2018 Global Youth Health Summit on September 15-16, 2018 at Hong Kong International School. This event aims to bring together youth and thought leaders from across the world.

Over the course of the Summit, Youth Fellows will be empowered through keynotes, panels, and workshops with industry leaders in the fields of healthcare, public health, policy, and service. They will build critical leadership skills, foster new partnerships, learn about groundbreaking research in healthcare, and the role of youth, such as themselves, in health.

Our goal is to achieve impact, scale, and visibility.

Our Background

Building on the previous GYHS Summit in Atlanta, GA in partnership with the Global Youth Service Day, the #YouthinHealth Conference was established at Emory University. MD Junior convened over 100 distinguished youth fellows from more than 20 schools/colleges, 19 sponsors/exhibitors, and 12 exceptional speakers from world-class organizations like CDC, Emory University, Rollins School of Public Health, Forbes 30 under 30, etc.

Why should you participate?

Aside from being something that will stand out on your resume, you will receive an enriching educational experience. The GYHS is a unique opportunity where you will learn from esteemed leaders from a wide variety of industries through keynotes and panel discussions, as well as workshops. For those who are also looking to pursue the field of healthcare in the future, this is a fantastic opportunity!


Complimentary lunch and T-shirt provided.
