Dear Friend of CUGH,  
October was an exciting month at CUGH. We held a very successful 3-day workshop with SustainAbility Solutions on writing grant submissions to US funding institutions; a CUGH Happy Hour and a fantastic webinar attended by over 140 people on Global Health Law by Professor Virginia Rowthorn from the University Maryland, Baltimore and moderated by Dr. Jessica Evert, Executive Director of Child Family Health International. We also held an accountability webinar to share information about our activities and gain guidance from our members how we can better meet their needs.
Planning for our next conference, April 7-9 (satellites on April 6) 2017 is proceeding well. Stay tuned for a list of exciting speakers and topics on our conference website. We received over 1,000 abstract submissions and 100 suggestions for breakout panels. Much thanks to everyone who made a submission.

Next year on April 6, we are running a Job Fair with the Global Health Council. If your organization or institution would like to be a vendor at the Job Fair, please email for the registration forms and more information.
This month we are highlighting one of CUGH's original members, the University of Washington (UW). It received funding from the Gates Foundation for a Population Health Initiative. Over the next 25 years, UW will be working to improve the health of people and the environment in their region. An initiative that is an exciting evolution for academia.
A gentle reminder: please donate to our travel scholarship fund. All proceeds will be used to support our colleagues from LMICs to attend our annual conference. Thanks so much for your consideration. Donations in the US are tax deductible.

Lastly, remember to register for our conference April 7-9, 2016 in Washington DC with special satellite sessions on April 6.

Please share this bulletin widely.

Best wishes,
Keith Martin MD, PC
