World Health Day Symposium 2021

April 7, 2021 @ 9:00 am CDT

Global Minnesota hosts an important virtual symposium to mark World Health Day on April 7. The official theme for the day is Health Equity.

This enormous topic extends all the way from local grassroots issues to global policy initiatives. With its reputation for health care, organizations and companies based in Minnesota are in a unique position to share expertise in improving global health. As the facilitator of this symposium, Global Minnesota serves as a conduit of information that can take local innovations and extend their reach across the world.

What projects around the globe can shape solutions that support developing health equity? How can the United States and Minnesota learn from global innovators?

Register now to hear the perspectives of local, national, and international organizations and corporations that provide leadership in health care, research, and policy.
