The Next Generation of Global Health Leaders

Featured scholars: ElsaMarie D'Silva, Brian Murphy Eustis, Abraham Leno, and Estefania Palomino.

// A generational shift is often accompanied by big changes. The vigor, optimism, and fresh perspectives of the young invariably introduce new ideas and new ways of thinking. At home with technology, confident in the future, and better-connected with peers and partners around the globe, young leaders are emerging who expect to be heard and are determined to have an impact. Not that the good life has been handed to them — some have emerged from unimaginable hardship, but in surviving, they have found the inspiration to do better. How is the next generation of leaders already changing health and healthcare? What are their big ideas? How will they be different and why does it matter?
