The 2018 Hungry for Change Gala is a semiformal dinner that raises awareness about global health. This year’s theme is Health and the Environment. The evening will feature two keynote speakers - Dr. Blake Poland and Dr. Chantelle Richmond. Doors open at 6:00 p.m. for a cocktail hour with a cash bar and live music. Dinner will begin at 6:30 p.m. sharp. Throughout the evening there will be a silent auction and a photo auction. (Payment by cash or cheque for auction items is greatly appreciated).

Where are the proceeds going?

Proceeds from ticket sales will go towards the Global Health Funding Committee, which funds scholarships that help medicals students who go to resource-poor regions for clinical electives.
