The Los Angeles Global Health Conference, “Re-Designing Global Health: Innovations and Sustainability,” Covel Commons at UCLA
The Los Angeles Global Health Conference is an annual global health conference hosted in Southern California that brings together individuals from various disciplines across academia, NGOs, business, and the public sector to discuss pressing health issues, both locally and globally. Organized by UCLA, USC, Claremont Graduate University and Pardee Rand Graduate School students and supported by the UCLA Center for World Health, the USC Institute for Global Health, and Claremont McKenna College, the conference aims to educate and connect with members of the UCLA, USC, and Los Angeles communities about the varying health disparities both in our backyards and around the world. The UCLA Anderson Center for Global Management is a sponsor of the event. Home to people from more than 140 countries speaking 224 different languages, Los Angeles's rich cultural diversity makes it an ideal place to examine the current status of world health. The Los Angeles Global Health Conference provides an interactive educational forum where students, along with faculty and community members, join together to learn more about global health research and emerging solutions to improve the world’s health and provides a forum to discuss innovative ways to tackle health disparities—locally and globally. This year's conference "Re-Designing Global Health: Innovation and Sustainability” will highlight the myriad of current global health challenges that we face today, including climate change, implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals, and the need for new health care media and technologies.
