About the Program

SIIM believes that striving for parity and bi-directional exchange are must-haves for a strong global health program. To that end, we are expanding our Global Ambassador Program to now include a bi-directional exchange. This will create a path for SIIM members residing in developing countries to receive funding for registration, hotel, and travel to the annual meeting.
