Purpose: The forgotten people of this world are not all the same. Unique cultures and disparate resources means they face different challenges and require diverse partners. Those who seek to serve the forgotten are just as diverse in their knowledge, skill sets, and resources. How do we successfully bridge the gap between those serving and the forgotten? By focusing on creatively serving the uniqueness of every human being.

The 2018 Humanitarian Health Conference (formerly EMMC) is a forum to equip those who want to holistically serve the forgotten of this world. This conference will bring together leading experts in the field, offer hands-on learning opportunities (including simulation), provide courses that offer certification upon completion, present excellent networking settings, and equip learners to take the next step in partnering with the world’s most marginalized people. The theme, “the art of serving,” will focus on inspiring those who serve and equip them with the practical skills needed to navigate the unique challenges of serving the forgotten.

Target Audience: The 2018 HHC is focused on educating those involved in humanitarian health around the world.  This includes physicians, pharmacists, dentists, advance practice providers, nurses, allied health professionals, public health professionals, students, and service-minded volunteers. Accredited Continuing Education Offered.
