Texas Biomedical Research Institute (Texas Biomed) 80th Anniversary Global Health Symposium will bring together a range of thought leaders involved in global health, research, sustainability, and policy.
Hosting more than 50 speakers during 10 sessions including plenary addresses from world experts and concurrent sessions with speakers from various sectors, The Global Health Symposium will review the linkages between pandemics, increasing infectious disease threats and the sustainable development goals and discuss the approaches to meeting the challenges and mitigating the impact of infectious diseases. The program seeks to envision a new, forward-thinking, proactive approach to averting future infectious disease threats and thereby improve global health for the most vulnerable populations.
