The 2018 Triangle Global Health Annual Conference will bring together global health leaders to address the significant ways that innovative ideas can have a positive impact on communities. This year, the conference will address innovation from a broader and more comprehensive viewpoint.
The conference will showcase examples of innovation as well as a variety of definitions of "innovation": Innovation can be a new idea, program, or more-effective device or process. Innovation can also be used to design, implement and evaluate more effective solutions.
Attendees and presenters will explore expanded notions of innovation that are inclusive of, but far broader than technology alone. Sessions will delve into various types of innovation including global health program innovation, medical technology, mHealth and innovative business models.
