The Global Health Council

The Global Health Council, with headquarters in White River Junction, Vermont, and offices in Washington, DC, is the world's largest membership alliance of individuals and organizations dedicated to saving lives by improving health throughout the world.

Broadbridge was retained to organize two outreach events, designed to engage and educate community leaders and concerned citizens, so they will have the ability to understand, advocate and work at the policy and legislative levels on all issues related to global health.

In Vermont, a luncheon and open house was held at the new headquarters for the Global Health Council at 15 Railroad Row in White River Junction. U.S. Senator Patrick Leahy attended the luncheon, held at the Hotel Coolidge. Senator Leahy was the keynote speaker. The Council announced the Leahy Scholarship, established to fund an individual from Vermont to attend the Global Health Council Conference held annually in Washington, DC. Maurice Middleberg, the Council's Vice President of Public Policy announced the formation of the Northern New England Community Network for Global Health.
