Policy Track: Advocacy Day and Reception

Advocacy Day is back at the GHC conference! You will have an opportunity to showcase your organizations' work and discuss the importance of global health with your Members of Congress during this year's conference. We will devote an afternoon to meetings on Capitol Hill. The purpose of these meetings are to introduce yourselves and your organization to key congressional offices, show them that global health programs work, bring your knowledge and expertise to Capitol Hill, and learn more about Congressional interest areas in global health.

Directly following the Advocacy meetings the Global Health Council's President and CEO Dr. Jeffrey L. Sturchio will present Congressional Awards to Global Health Champions at a reception on Capitol Hill. GHC is also honored to welcome keynote speakers to the reception, including Gerry Elsdon, South African celebrity advocate and survivor of tuberculosis. Join us for this occasion to network with key Congressional representatives and public health professionals while enjoying fine cocktails and hors d'oeuvres to conclude Advocacy Day.
