The international conference is a Johns Hopkins University student and faculty-led program open to students in grades 9-12. Through the 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 2024. The conference consists of a series of multiple virtual events on multiple days throughout June-August 2024. If an admitted student cannot attend parts of the programming synchronously, 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 the website and will be accepted until March 1st, 2024. Each year, admission into our program is competitive, so we highly encourage your students to apply at their earliest convenience.
