Apply for Global Health Leaders Conference at Johns Hopkins

On behalf of our Directors of The Global Health Leaders Conference at Johns Hopkins University, I would like to invite the students of Jackson-Reed High School who are interested in global health and medicine to apply for our 2023 virtual summer program.

Our international conference is a Johns Hopkins University student and faculty-led program open to students in grades 9-12. Through our conference, students from around the world learn about issues in global health, public health, and medicine through world-class lectures from leaders in these fields, develop connections with like-minded exceptional students, and share their own work and ideas on global health-related topics at the international scale. Featured speakers at our conference have included leading global health researchers, renowned professors, physicians, policy developers, and Nobel Prize winners. In short, the purpose of our program is to reach passionate students of all backgrounds from around the world and develop the next generation of leaders in global health, public health, and medicine.

Virtual conference programming will be held throughout the summer of 2023. The conference consists of a series of multiple virtual events on multiple days throughout June-August 2023. If an admitted student cannot attend parts of the programming live, there will be asynchronous options for students to watch the content they miss. The conference registration fee for admitted students is 99 USD; if the fee places a significant financial burden on a student’s family, financial assistance is available as we do not want the fee to be a barrier for any deserving student. There are also no application fees.

The conference application is available on our website (https://glohea.org) and will be accepted until February 12th, 2023. Each year, admission into our program is competitive, so we highly encourage your students to apply at their earliest convenience.

Please do not hesitate to email our team at ghlcjhu@glohea.org or visit our website if you would like any clarification or have any questions. We hope your interested students will take advantage of this opportunity, and our admissions committee looks forward to reviewing their applications!
