“A Meeting of Minds”–CNN

Unite For Sight’s must-attend, thought-leading conference convenes leaders, changemakers, and participants from all fields of global health, international development, and social entrepreneurship.  The conference convenes 2,200 people from all 50 states and from 50 countries.

Conference registration is now open. Register during July to secure the lowest registration rate. The registration rate increases after July.

Interested in presenting at the conference? We have two types of presentation opportunities.

  • Call For Abstracts: Do you have an abstract for oral or poster presentation?  Submit your abstract for presentation.  The first abstract deadline is August 15, 2010.  Complete details are on the conference website.
  • Call For Social Enterprise Pitches: Do you have an innovative idea or a new program in development?  Submit your idea for presentation.  Social enterprise pitches are accepted on a rolling application deadline, and the first quality pitches will be accepted for oral presentation.  When the social enterprise pitch spots are filled to capacity, applications will no longer be accepted.  See social enterprise pitch instructions on the conference website.
