March 2nd, 2012
This year the Economic Self-Reliance Conference is combining with the Global Family Health & Development Conference to bring a family perspective to the major health and self-reliance development issues that compromise the future of individuals and communities in domestic and international settings.
2012 schedule includes a morning plenary session and breakout sessions in the afternoon.
Historically the Global Family Health & Development Conference has been sponsored by the Department of Health Science and the College of Nursing at Brigham Young University in partnership with the Pan American Health Organization and colleagues from the Utah County Health Department. In 2012, this collaborative effort expanded to include the Melvin J. Ballard Center for Economic Self-Reliance of the BYU Marriott School and the Kennedy Center International Development Minor.
This new collaboration will allow the focus to shift to the Global Family Health & Development Conference this year and a greater focus will be placed on the Economic Self-Reliance Conference next year.
This year’s conference is designed to build a collaborative network of people committed to sharing innovative ideas and building collaborative relationships to solve the complex problems associated with poverty.
