Volunteer with Largest Global Health Conference

The largest global health organization is the Global Health Council. I do not have alot direct experience with this organization but I know that they do alot and that there annual conference is the largest global health conference.  Here is some information on how to volunteer at the conference from the website:

The Helping Handz Conference Volunteer program, now in its 37th year, is an important opportunity for Council members to directly contribute to the overall success of the conference program.

Student and professional volunteers assist in a number of conference administrative duties that are essential to daily conference operations.

Why Volunteer?

  • Interact and network with more than 2500 global health and development specialists from over 85 countries
  • Limited hours of service (8-10 minimum) allow you to make a significant contribution to the overall success of the conference, while being able to participate in sessions and events
  • Meet new colleagues and have fun
  • Receive a substantial registration discount
Who Should Volunteer?
All individuals with an interest in global health – students are especially encouraged to apply.
It's a benefit of Council membership! You must be or become a current Council member in order to volunteer. Non-members are not eligible, but may choose to become new members. If your organization is a member with an organizational dues level of $1,050 or above, you may qualify to become a member at no additional cost to you. Questions: Contact Kelly Gardner, Membership Assistant via e-mail at membership@globalhealth.org.

Student Members: It's like having a backstage pass!
This is a great opportunity to take advantage of the additional networking and learning opportunities that being a volunteer provides.

Groups of students from universities, schools of public health and student organizations are encouraged to volunteer.

Thanks so much to Misty for passing this on!
