Why Sponsor?

Promote your business or cause in the largest medical center in the world.

Our conference draws professionals and students from all over the Texas Medical Center (TMC), home to the world’s largest children’s hospital (Texas Children’s Hospital) and the world’s largest cancer hospital (University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center). The TMC covers 1345 acres total and has a GDP of $25 Billion, making it the 8th largest business district in the United States.

By sponsoring our conference, you will be provided access to this audience of healthcare professionals and groups of students and trainees interested in global health at Baylor College of Medicine, The University of Texas Health Science Center, and 52 other institutions.

Please see our sponsorship levels linked below for information on how you may promote your business or cause.

In addition to supporting our conference, a portion of your funds goes directly to supporting students leading global health projects and research endeavors throughout the TMC. Our grants committee disseminates and vets applications for up to $1,000 in funding per project. Some example projects include COVID-19 based health outcomes research amongst the Middle Eastern and Refugee communities in Houston and increasing access to feminine hygiene products in Kenya.
