CDC’s Office of Minority Health and Health Equity is now accepting nominations for students to attend the 2016 Millennial Health Leaders’ Summit. The Summit will be held from March 31-April 1 in Atlanta, GA. Nominations will be accepted through February 15.
The Millennial Health Leaders’ Summit is a two-day intensive training for graduate and medical students on vital health equity topics. Through workshops and case studies students explore key components of health equity practice with experts in the field as they prepare for future careers as health equity leaders.
The goal of the Summit is to equip the next generation of leaders with the tools they need to take on the task of eliminating health disparities, thus achieving health equity in the United States in the 21st century. This Summit is a wonderful opportunity for graduate public health and medical students to network with fellow students and current health equity leaders.
The Summit will take place at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Headquarters in Atlanta, GA.
Nominees should identify students with a strong interest in addressing health disparities and who will benefit from interacting with others who share a passion for achieving health equity. Schools and programs of public health will be allowed to nominate two students and must provide students attending the Summit with funding for travel, meals, and accommodations.
Notification of nominee selections will be sent to institutional representatives and the nominees by February 22.
Please complete the attached form and return it to CDC at firstname.lastname@example.org by February 15.
