“Pioneering spirit should continue, not to conquer the planet or space … but rather to improve the quality of life.”
— Bertrand Piccard
The Global Health Next Generation Network is proudly announcing its 4th annual conference in Global Health! This year’s event will focus on career steps for global health students. What’s next after a global health degree?
Finding a job after graduation can be tricky. As a new graduate, it can be difficult to find your path in the field. The career path starts from somewhere, but from where and how? How to know that you have the right tools to start to build your career path? Many students graduating from global health and public health education programs claim that their career path is even more challenging. Working on global health is amazing as it offers chances to improve the lives of millions. However, entering this professional arena can be very challenging given the incredibly diverse number of occupations falling under the umbrella of public health and its vast possibilities all over the world.
At the Global Health Next Generation Network (GHNGN), we engage and mobilize the community of emerging Global Health professionals from different cultures and backgrounds to exchange expertise, skills and opportunities. On our core mission is to help each other out in the transition from academic to professional careers in global health, to initiate and foster dialogue on Global Health education and to support engagement of young professionals in global health initiatives and projects worldwide. To achieve that, since 2014, we dedicate our annual conferences to the contemporary challenges students and young professional of global health face in their everyday life.
This year, the Global Health Next Generation Network (GHNGN) is inviting all of you to join the 2017 Next Generation Global Health Forum (NGGHF) focused on career steps for global health students and young professionals, where you could meet with global health professionals, sharing their own experiences and their key to success.
