together young professionals and students from across the world for a series 
of panels, discussions, and workshops aimed at examining the unique 
opportunities for young leaders to promote better health care infrastructure 
in developing countries through innovative global partnerships and social 
entrepreneurship.  Confirmed speakers at the summit include:

* Aleya Hammad, Former Executive Director/Assistant Director General, World 
Health Organization

Thanks to the generous support of the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, Open 
Society Institute, and Ford Foundation, the summit is free for selected 
participants, including tuition and food.  Travel to the conference is at 
the participant's expense, but Americans for Informed Democracy will do its 
best to set up car pools for participants coming from the Northeast and 
mid-Atlantic region.
