Global Humanitarian Summit

April 22,  2017

School of Medicine at Emory University

Organized and run by a consortium of Emory undergraduate and strengthened by involvement from community partners including CDC staff, Emory physicians, and members of various Atlanta communities the summit speaks to everyone. The need for this event stemmed initially from the simple realization that we, as humans, have a shared responsibility to protect and aid our world. Through a series of panels, speakers, movie screenings, and exhibitors, we are bringing together dedicated individuals of all careers and backgrounds to address humanity’s greatest issues and inspire creative problem solving.

 

Our speakers and their topics for the event are as follows:

  • Jeannie Alexander- Prison and Racial Justice
  • Caroline Olok- Education and Peace Building Initiatives 
  • Doug Ellis- Angel Flights, Medical Services
  • Emile Badibanga- Education, Health, and Prison rights
  • Phil Talboy- Ebola, Global Health
  • Ken Clark- Clean Water, Sustainability
  • Megan Beall and Mary Lou Beall- Anti-Human Trafficking
