The Global Health Leaders Conference at Johns Hopkins University

All students in grades 9-12 who are interested in global health and medicine are invited to apply to participate at the virtual 2022 ‘Global Health Leaders Conference at Johns Hopkins University.’

The international conference is a Johns Hopkins University student and faculty-led program; at the conference, students learn about issues in global health, public health, and medicine through world-class lectures from leaders in these fields, forge connections with like-minded exceptional students, and share their own work and ideas on global health-related topics at the international scale by having the opportunity to present in our student speaker series. Featured speakers at the conference have included leading global health researchers, physicians, policy developers, and Nobel Prize winners. In short, the purpose of this program is to develop the next generation of leaders in global health, public health, and medicine.

Virtual conference programming (such as featured speaker presentations, student presentations, etc.) will be held throughout the late spring/early summer of 2022. The conference fee for admitted students is $49 USD; if the fee places a significant financial burden on a student’s family, financial assistance is available as they do not want the fee to be a barrier for any deserving student. There are no application fees.

The conference application is available on the following website ( and will be accepted until February 28th, 2022. Admission into the program is competitive, so they highly encourage students to apply as early as possible!

Please do not hesitate to email them at or visit our website if you would like any clarification or have any questions.
