Message from our Chair
Dear friends and colleagues,
Warm greetings! I hope you are staying well as we all continue to adapt to this new norm. As this is my last “Message from the Chair” before I hand the Chair role over to Dr. Padmini Murthy after the Annual Meeting, I want to let you know how inspired I am by the work that each one of you is contributing to the COVID-19 response and to strengthening the broader global and public health community. On behalf of our section leadership team, I offer our gratitude for your contributions and the hope that you will continue to share your accomplishments, challenges and learnings with your International Health section community.
Next week is the start of our Annual Meeting. And even though we are going virtual this year, our leaders have arranged various activities and opportunities for us to connect with each other. You can visit us at the Exhibit Booth during one of our virtual office hours on Sunday, Monday or Tuesday; at our Open House on Sunday; or our Networking and Awards Ceremony on Tuesday. There will be plenty of opportunities for networking with each other during these events. You will find more information on our events in our round-up of IH events at the Annual Meeting in this issue.
In addition, you will read an interview with two of our members – Frances Dean and Vanessa Chilombo Da Costa; hear updates from our various working groups and committees; and get up close and personal with leaders from our Global and Maternal Child Health Network.
