Today’s most pressing global public health challenges require truly global collaboration.

What can the public, private, and social sectors do to ensure the most dynamic leaders are working together? Why is diversity vitally important in the workforce development and hiring process of global public health professionals? What core competencies does the next generation need to help address these challenges? How can higher education institutions best prepare the next generation of public health advocates for the road ahead?

PYXERA Global & Global Health Fellows Program II are excited to bring together leading voices in Global Public Health in order to discuss these important issues. Thought leaders from the public, private, and social sectors will discuss how their commitment to tri-sector partnership is making an impact in bolstering diversity within the Global Health and professional workforce.

Join the conversation online tomorrow, June 3, at 2:00 pm Eastern Time.
