The Mini-University is an annual forum that brings together professionals working in a variety of Global Health areas for a day long event that offers a variety of presentations highlighting evidence-based best practices and state-of-the-art information.
The forum is divided into hour-long blocks, each offering a variety of concurrent presentations from technical areas like HIV/AIDS, family planning and reproductive health, maternal and child health, infectious diseases, health systems, and cross-cutting issues.
In addition to gaining access to technical knowledge, participants are also able to engage in networking opportunities with a cross-section of professionals. Attendees of past events have included students, medical professionals, public health experts, members of the military, NGOs, USG staff, non-profits and general participants interested in global health topics.
The day-long event is free and open to the public.
