Global Health conference

October 5, 2010 —

On October 13, our global health department and the Heartland Global Health Consortium are again hosting an awesome conference. This year’s topic, “the influence of agriculture on global health,” ties really nicely to the World Food Prize conference going on at the same time in Des Moines. Some of the speakers and attendees will be able to attend both.

Not only will you get to hear from amazingly experienced global health experts from around Iowa, you’ll get to hear from the president of Pioneer Hi-Bred and the SNS deputy undersecretary for food, nutrition and consumer svcs. with the USDA. That will be really interesting!

It’s a full-day event which includes lunch & is only $25 to the public. As DMU students you can attend this conference for free, which is pretty darn fantastic. Registration has been extended until THIS THURSDAY so sign up soon!!


Courtney Tompkins has been part of the DMU marketing team since Nov. 2005 and loves promoting a school she believes in so thoroughly. Proud daughter and patient of DMU alumni, Courtney knows, first-hand, that Des Moines University is doing a world of good. A fan of all outdoor festivals, fruity drinks and nearly all edibles, she has a hard time narrowing down her list of favorite places to go and things to do but lists the Iowa State Fair as an all-time fave. She loves her 8-minute commute to DMU from Urbandale, a suburb of Des Moines. She and husband Tyler are owned by three large dogs, Tonka, Tucker and Tank.

    Wow! $25 is a great price especially since it includes lunch. I can spend that much on lunch alone. I am totally interested in how Agricultural effects nutrition and global health

    This is very refreshing to hear. I am always ready to stay updated on the USDA.

    Nice to know about the health conference organized by DMU. The topic chosen for this year is quite relevant to the present time. There is a some obvious connection between agriculture and our health. The quality of the agricultural product that we eat is the deciding factor of our health. I think this conference will be a grand success.
