Global AgingTomorrow marks the Third Annual Global Health Conference here at Des Moines University presented by our global health department, the Heartland Global Health Consortium and Pioneer. This year’s focus is on “the challenges of global aging.” Through a series of speakers we will discuss those challenges and identify steps on how to address them as a community.

The event starts with registration at 10 a.m. and includes lunch and student poster presentations followed by various speakers. DMU students, along with students from HGHC member institutions – Central College, Drake University, Iowa State University, Mercy College of Health Sciences, Simpson College, University of Iowa, and University of Northern Iowa, can attend this conference for free.
