"A Meeting of Minds"--CNN

The Global Health & Innovation Conference is the world's largest global health conference and social entrepreneurship conference.  This must-attend, thought-leading conference annually convenes 2,200 leaders, changemakers, students, and professionals from all fields of global health, international development, and social entrepreneurship.  Register during September to secure the lowest registration rate.

For those interested in presenting at the conference, we are currently accepting abstracts for presentation, and the final abstract deadline is September 30.

The Global Health & Innovation Conference accepts two types of abstract submissions. Professionals and students are eligible to submit either type of abstract.

Oral and Poster Abstracts: These abstracts may be research-, clinical-, or program-focused. The abstract must include results (data and outcomes), and accepted abstracts will be invited for oral or poster presentation. The final abstract deadline is September 30,2013. Decisions will be announced around November 15, and decisions are final based on the abstract submitted by the deadline. Review the complete instructions, submission details, and selection criteria at

Social Enterprise Pitch Abstracts For Oral Presentation: Those in an early stage of development or implementation of a program, project, or organization should submit an abstract for the Social Enterprise Pitch Sessions. Pitch abstracts are accepted for oral presentation on a rolling application deadline, and we encourage you to submit a pitch abstract at your earliest convenience. Instructions and submission details can be seen at

Information Sessions For Oral Presentation: In contrast to oral and poster abstracts and social enterprise pitches, which are merit-based and selective, the organizational information sessions are advertising opportunities for products or services. Applications are reviewed to determine if the for-profit or non-profit organization provides products or services that may be of great interest to conference participants.
