Thank you for attending the

2018 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.

Triangle Global Health Career Day provides an excellent opportunity for students and professionals interested in careers in global health to learn more about the field, make connections with influential individuals and institutions, and sharpen and develop their marketable skills. At the same time, local organizations will gain access to highly-qualified and passionate individuals interested in global health and have an opportunity to share their mission and impact.

Triangle Global Health Career Day will bring students and professionals together to explore careers in global health. Attendees will have opportunities to speak one-on-one to representatives from global health organizations to learn more about their work, hiring practices, and current opportunities. The day’s activities will also include skill-building sessions, time for networking with local leaders in global health, and information and advice on entering into the field.
