Sponsors, Exhibitors and Partners

 CUGH is now accepting applications for Small Global Health Education Grants!
The late Dr. Tom Hall, a global health leader and one of CUGH's greatest supporters, generously provided a gift to support small global health education grants. Dr. Hall passed away May 20, 2017, but his legacy of giving lives on. 

CUGH members are invited to apply for either small grants (under $5,000) or for larger grants (up to $10,000). The deadline for the second round of grant proposals is August 20, 2017.
