More than ever, there is a need to guide the future of global health through action. The complexity of today’s global health challenges requires harnessing the skills and energies of many disciplines in developing innovative and effective solutions. As the global health community, it is our duty to determine how best to guide our collective efforts as well as those from the unprecedented rise of new professionals now graduating from global health programs. The message is clear: it is time for greater Innovation and greater focus on Implementation with an eye towards a positive and long-lasting Impact on health outcomes.
Join us in March 2013, for a meeting bringing together over 1,000 members from a variety of sectors and disciplines to examine the cutting edge issues in several areas:
Innovations and interventions to improve health conditions
Global justice and governance: Human Rights, legal issues, ethics, and policy
Interactions and interconnectedness of government policy on health outcomes
Partnerships and capacity-building for education and research in global health
Role of the private sector: Embrace, engage, avoiding conflicts of interest
Determinants of culture change in education of practice
Training the global health workforce
Technology: Advancements, set-backs, implications and outcomes

The One Health Symposium will provide a unique learning environment for Penn students which focuses on communication, critical problem solving, and interdisciplinary collaboration. Teams from various health and science graduate schools at Penn will work together to respond to an emerging infectious disease outbreak. This experience will simulate the actual problems and questions that health care professionals, government officials, and experts in various fields must face when a novel disease emerges.
