Registration is now open for the 2018 Global Health Mini-University (Mini-U)! The Mini-U has been bringing students and professionals together to learn about a variety of technical topics in global health for 16 years. This free, annual learning forum is supported by a partnership between USAID Global Health Bureau and George Washington University Milken Institute School of Public Health. Mark your calendars—the 2018 Mini-U is scheduled for Monday, October 22, at the George Washington University Cloyd Heck Marvin Center in Washington, D.C. Click here to register to attend.

EnCompass is proud to be associated with this event as the manager of the Global Health Professional and Organizational Development (GHPOD) II program, which organizes the Mini-U annually. The agenda will feature more than 60 sessions in technical areas, such as cross-sectoral engagement, health systems, HIV/AIDS, maternal, neonatal, and child health, and nutrition. In addition to a keynote address by Dr. Keith Martin, Executive Director of the Consortium of Universities for Global Health, and a lunch speaker series, participants will have the option to attend two morning and two afternoon sessions. A more detailed agenda for the 2018 Global Health Mini-University is available here.
