The Global Health Council’s 38th Annual International Conference on Global Health: Securing a Healthier Future in a Changing World has selected Duke University’s Center for Health Policy & Inequalities Research panel entitled “OVC Physical and Mental Wellbeing in Low and Middle Income Countries” for presentation.

Participants will better understand the complex nature of issues facing orphaned and abandoned children (OAC) and the need for interventions that include families, communities and policy; attention to cutting-edge research designs and measurement issues will be emphasized. Our faculty members Nathan Thielman, MD, MPH, Karen O’Donnell, Ph.D. and Jan Ostemann, Ph.D. and Shannon Dorsey, Ph.D from the University of Washington will be presenting.

The conference will be held at the Omni Shoreham Hotel in Washington, D.C. June 13-17, 2011, register at www.globalhealth.org. Please note that if you’re a part of DGHI (or another participating organization) membership is free – which significantly reduces registration costs if you want to attend the entire event.
