Organize Your Own:

CUGH is proud to present a series of satellite sessions developed and hosted by CUGH working committees and partnering institutions. A number of satellite session slots will also be made available to global health affinity groups to organize.

These sessions are opportunities to delve in depth into a number of global health issues through half or full day sessions on March 15, 2018 (one day prior to the conference's core 3-day agenda), or for periods after the conference schedule ends on March 16, 17, or 18.

Space is limited. Applications to hold a satellite session are reviewed on a rolling basis and contingent on space availability.

Application Deadline for Satellite Sessions: November 30, 2017
Rooms are also available to conference attendees who wish to hold their program meetings, alumni meetings and receptions, interest group meetings, etc. during the dates of the 2018 CUGH conference in order to take advantage of a time when so many of their group members are already brought together by the CUGH event. 

Space is limited. Applications to reserve space for a satellite meeting are reviewed on a rolling basis, and contingent on space availability.
