There are many of us passionate about global health within the greater Houston and Gulf Coast areas, but communication between and even within institutions is often lacking. We invite you to join us to discover the projects your fellow students and faculty have undertaken in disease research, clinical incentives, quality improvement, public health outreach, and more, and to participate in this forum for idea exchange and innovation in global health topics. What: Connect Conference 2014 When: Saturday and Sunday, March 22-23, 2014 Where: Baylor College of Medicine, 1 Baylor Plaza In addition, we are seeking abstract submissions from faculty, health professionals and students in the greater Houston area that have an interest or are involved in global health issues!

Prizes will be awarded for the best poster presentations.
