In April of 2018, GlobeMed at GWU had the opportunity to host our first HillTop Conference. HillTop Conferences are held by various GlobeMed chapters throughout the country to give students the chance to come together and discuss critical issues in public and global health.
GlobeMed at GWU’s conference was inspired by our location in the heart of Washington, DC, being surrounded by the very individuals and organizations that initiate and carry out change. Accordingly, our first conference, Capitol HillTop: Health Policy in the United States, followed the theme of healthcare policy. Our chapter successfully hosted students and public health professionals from a myriad of universities and organizations across the country as they participated in a number of lectures, panels, and activities over the course of a weekend. The discussions had between speakers and delegates during Capitol HillTop left us optimistic and excited for the future of healthcare in the United States
