This event has passed Get tickets

Event description

Global health — the practice of improving health for all people worldwide — is a major priority for the U.S. government, especially in the era of COVID-19 and climate change. Why should U.S. voters and taxpayers care about the health of people around the world? Please join us for a lively conversation with two members of Congress from Southern California to bridge our global health priorities with the local needs of people in California and across the United States.

This free, public event will be streamed online; the webinar details will be emailed to all registered attendees.
