Welcome to the Global Health Youth Summit (GHYS) blog! A key component of the Global Health Fellows Program (GHFP) II is our Diversity Initiative. With FACES for the Future Coalition, a complimentary partner, we seek to ensure the most diverse talent pool of global health professionals possible starting at the high school level. GHYS was created to provide an invaluable opportunity for diverse high school students interested in health careers to travel to Washington, DC and gain exposure to the field of global health. We invite you to learn about the youth summit by reading and following this blog series.
