Conference Sponsorship &
Global Health and Leadership Conference
Our conference relies on the generosity of our community to put together this event each year. Harvard students, faculty, staff, and alumni volunteer to organize the event and mentor students. Sponsorship goes directly to improving programming. Donors can choose to sponsor our event, a child, or a cataract surgery.
All donors will be listed in our conference book. We also accept in-kind donations. GHLC 2019 offers a great opportunity to build relationships with individuals interested in global health. We greatly appreciate your contribution to our mission.
- Sponsoring the event helps us pay for A/V costs, custodial fees, space, food, books, materials, and giveaways.
- Sponsoring a child helps low-income students be able to attend by waiving the conference fee ($50).
- Sponsoring a cataract surgery ($50) covers the cost for a low-income patient at our partner clinics in Ghana (Crystal Eye Clinic) and India (Kalinga Eye Hospital).

“Not only was I inspired by all the speakers and stimulated by the peers who attended the conference, but I was also able to make friends and get to know all the great people!”
“I am in awe how others put so much time and effort to into their projects and presentations. I liked how there was a wide variety of topics that my peers chose.”
“It is a globally illuminating experience, and a chance to learn so much from some of the brightest minds out there. I wouldn't miss it for the world!”
“I was delighted to meet outstanding doctors, Harvard undergraduates, and most importantly, other ambitious high school students interested in global health."
"Shigeko Sasamori, one of the only survivors from the Hiroshima bombings in 1945, came to speak about her experiences.”
“I began to really see the impact of mental health. This conference did a wonderful job of talking about less talked about aspects of global health. We can talk about AIDs and Malaria all day, because they are serious issues, but this year disabilities, and war, and mental health were discussed which was really important.”
“I sincerely appreciate the effort this program puts towards helping students who are passionate about global health. The conference opened many doors for individuals all around the world. They have truly been exceptional in responding to all of my questions and have been there to guide me whenever it was needed. They have made it very clear to all of us 'global health people' that they care deeply about the sustainability and success of this program.”
“I feel so encouraged to do more now, I feel inspired from the project that my peers conduct and also what they can become and form into. I feel like I have a huge support, all the speakers were so open to communication and I feel like that is the same in the field.”
Tha Dah Say
“It was interesting focusing on mental health services and the overall inequalities in communities and countries in basic services like water and severe poverty affecting mental health.”
“There is nothing but benefits for someone who attends this conference. Personally, it really opened my eyes and inspired me to start making my own impact.”
“Even though I was only at the conference for a short time, I totally enjoyed it! I also felt the conference is diverse in terms of the different aspects of global health it has reached.”
“Communication is a key aspect of Global health, both when a contagion is spreading and when messages about the latest findings on chronic disease or how to live a healthy lifestyle may resonate.”
“It is a rare opportunity to see what amazing things are possible in the realm of Global Health and that it is truly inspirational to see so many people motivated to do good in the world.”
