The United Nations has established eight Millennium Development Goals, and Footprints Foundation focuses on goals 3 (empowering women), 4 (reducing child mortality) and 5 (improving maternal health). University of Miami’s Miller School has also worked toward achieving the Millennium Goals through the Integrated Community Development Program. The UN has indicated that its post-2015 goals include continuing with the Millennium Development goals in addition to advancing sustainable development and addressing gaps related to health and gender, among other things. We expect to address these issues head on in the conference where we will collaborate with nongovernmental organizations, civil society groups, governmental organizations, the medical community and social entrepreneurs.
This conference, planned and orchestrated by the PIH interns, will bring together student activists and speakers from many disciplines to discuss global citizenry and the ways in which students can access and affect the mechanisms that influence change in global health.

The Social Medicine Symposium serves as a platform for participants to learn from and interact with leaders in the domains of social medicine, global health, and social justice, creating a unique opportunity for engaged conversation on deepening the integration of social medicine into health profession education.
The MSF podcasts, titled "Frontline Reports," will provide emergency updates from MSF projects around the world, shedding light on underreported or ignored humanitarian crises and neglected diseases. Listeners will hear interviews with MSF staff in the field and their patients. Topics will range from the daily struggle for survival among refugees affected by war and natural disaster to the obstacles confronting people living with HIV/AIDS in the developing world.
"Podcasting provides us with a new tool to inform the public about critical humanitarian issues often ignored by the media," said MSF-USA Executive Director Nicolas de Torrenté. "By hearing a patient's voice or a doctor's explanation of the profound challenges that go along with working in a refugee camp, listeners will be connected much more directly with today's critical, and largely unacknowledged, humanitarian and medical crises."
