triangle global health career day

FEBRUARY 16, 2018

Thank you for attending triangle global health career day!

What our attendees had to say...
All of the discussions were extremely insightful and helpful! I left with so much information to help build my public/global health career.
I loved getting lost in all things global health. As well, I appreciated the real language surrounding work, life balance, tenacity, and more.
My favorite aspect of the day was variety. The content of events offered by TGHC is consistently high, and the sections are appropriately timed. Nothing carried on too long, and I felt engaged throughout the day.
