Global Health Idea Lab Virtual Summit


The Global Health Idea Lab Virtual Summit embraces and nurtures diverse talents, creativity, curiosity, and collaboration. They dive deep into the complexities, impact, challenges, joys, and lessons learned in global health, innovation, education, and social impact. Join this unique forum where everyone is inspired to dive deep, to have meaningful conversations, and to embrace their collective extraordinary potential for growth and impact.

This year’s event includes seven phenomenal plenary panel conversations with 4-6 thought leaders in each. Each session is an in-depth conversation, with no lectures, memorized talks, or PowerPoints. The sessions are not siloed based on discrete topics, but instead the conference is designed as a unique forum and exchange of ideas across disciplines.

  • Cultural Humility, The Ethics of Responsible Global Engagement

  • Measuring Real Outcomes and Effectiveness

  • Outside of the Box: Creativity and Curiosity in Health and Development

The virtual summit sessions will be live streamed, and the archived recordings will be available for one year for virtual summit registrants.
