You'll Have the Answers; We'll Ask the Questions
Survey of Delegates and Observer Representatives

At USP's 2015 Convention Meeting, Delegates and Observer Representatives were asked to consider ways in which the organizations they represent might collaborate with USP toward the shared goal of improving global health.  Shortly, Delegates and Observer Representatives will receive an email with a link to an online survey which will ask about:

  • fields of interest, service areas, geographic locations of operation and interest, etc.  for the organization you represent
  • the kinds of tools you would find helpful as a Delegate or Observer Representative to USP
  • mission intersects and potential collaborations between and among our organizationscontact information for communications staff at the organization who can help us identify mutually beneficial outreach activities

We look forward to receiving an enthusiastic response to this outreach, so that we can find meaningful ways to work toward our shared vision of improved global health
