This year, all of the proceeds from the Global Health Conference will be donated to Partners in Health (PIH), an organization that has established longitudinal health care centers and resources for developing countries. In particular, their presence in Haiti, a country which has been devastated by several natural events, most recently Hurricane Matthew, has had a tremendous impact on the health and well-being of the most vulnerable populations there. Please consider donating directly to Partners in Health!
