Dear Members and Friends of the Coalition for Global Hearing Health,
We are excited to announce the dates for the 12th Annual CGHH Conference to be held on November 4 – November 6 (GMT), 2021. As you know, the Annual CGHH Conference is the foremost gathering of people who devoted to improving hearing healthcare in low-resource environments. Each year, we strive to provide you with the latest in science and technology related to expanding hearing services and opportunities to network with others working toward making hearing health a global priority.
Because of the persistent international travel restrictions for many of our colleagues around the world, the 2021 Annual Conference will again be completely virtual featuring both live and pre-recorded content. This year’s conference will also provide improved sessions for small group discussion. We are also delighted to offer a Virtual Poster Session with opportunities to interact with poster presenters. In keeping with our mission, this poster session will provide an opportunity for our members and attendees to share their experiences with like-minded colleagues. The Call for Abstracts for this poster session will be sent to your email soon.
We hope you will SAVE the DATE to join us for this important conference on November 4 -6, 2021.
