Meeting Overview

This in-person summit, Compassion, Ethics & Excellence in Global Health, will explore what happens when the core values that drive medical global health programs, trips and product donations — including in part, compassion, collaboration and integrity — collide with operational imperatives, cultural bias and ethical blind spots.

The 2019 summit will include:
  • General sessions with high-profile speakers and themes
  • Breakout sessions to explore the general session themes and provide extended networking opportunities
  • Tools and resources for program and personal development
  • An evening community symposium on mission trips that will include participants from the Atlanta global health and mission trip community
