GHIC 2015: Global Health & Innovation Conference
March 28-29, 2015
Yale University, New Haven, CT

Abstract Submissions

The Global Health & Innovation Conference accepts three types of abstract submissions. Professionals and students are eligible to submit either type of abstract.

Currently Accepting Submissions:

Social Impact Pitch Abstracts For Oral Presentation: Those in an early-stage or start-up phase of development or implementation of a program, project, or organization should submit an abstract for the Social Impact Pitch Sessions. Pitch abstracts are accepted for oral presentation, and the final submission deadline is Monday, March 2. Instructions and submission details can be seen at

Information Sessions For Oral Presentation: In contrast to oral and poster abstracts and social enterprise pitches, which are merit-based and selective, the organizational information sessions are advertising opportunities for products or services. Applications are reviewed on a rolling application deadline, and (if space is available) the final submission deadline is March 5. The for-profit or non-profit organization application will be reviewed to determine if the organization provides products or services that may be of great interest to conference participants. Instructions and submission details can be seen at

Passed The Deadline:

Oral and Poster Abstracts: These abstracts may be research-, clinical-, or program-focused. The abstract must include results (data and outcomes), and accepted abstracts will be invited for oral or poster presentation. The final abstract deadline was September 30, 2014, and decisions were announced on November 15. The decisions are final based on the abstract submitted by the deadline.
