The 12th Annual Global Health Mini-University is being held on September 14th, 2012, at the Cloyd Heck Marvin Center on George Washington University’s campus. This is a free, day-long event that brings together professionals working in a variety of global health areas with presentations that highlight evidence-based best practices and state-of-the-art information.
