Each fall, GIH offers programming designed for funders with a strong interest in health policy. These meetings, collectively known as the Fall Forum, are an excellent opportunity for funders with a strong interest in health policy to get up-to-speed on current issues, interact with leading thinkers, and connect with their grantmaking peers.
GIH’s virtual Fall Forum will continue to provide policy-engaged funders with information on current issues, access to leading thinkers, and connections with grantmaking peers. The 2020 Fall Forum will consist of two timely and relevant programming series:
