One Person Can Make a Difference: Confronting Today's Global Health Challenges

Having traveled through Africa extensively and seen some of the world’s health problems firsthand, Barbara Bush was inspired to make a difference and harness the passion, energy and skills of her generation to overcome malaria, HIV/AIDS and the other epidemics of our time. The difference that Bush made was founding the Global Health Corps, an organization that places fellows around the world to bring change to regions of the world that need it most. Bush’s vision has allowed for young leaders—whether their skill set is in finance, supply chain management or other fields atypical in the fight against disease and poverty—to bring their experience to bear in delivering health solutions to those who do not always have ready access to quality care. In this powerful address, Bush talks about her entrepreneurial experience in starting the Global Health Corps and the experiences of those who are also on the front lines in delivering care to those in need. An inspiring young leader, Bush shows how everyone has the ability to give back—not only on the global stage but in their own communities as well.

Joint Presentation: Barbara Pierce Bush and Jenna Hager

United in their humanitarian missions and the spirit of service—as well as through their close family bond—Barbara Pierce Bush and Jenna Hager have found a shared purpose in giving voice to the disadvantaged while bringing to light stories of hope. Coming from a unique vantage point as the only twins to grow up in the White House as both grandchildren and children, Barbara and Jenna were inspired to live lives of meaning from an early age. Stemming from their travels to impoverished areas in Africa and Latin America, they have now made it their life’s calling to address the most pressing health, education and economic inequality issues of our time. Whether through Barbara’s creation of Global Health Corps or Jenna’s position as a Today correspondent and UNICEF chair, both women help spread the message that ideas put to action are the best kind. With their special brand of infectious warmth and kind humor—evidenced in their delightful back and forth banter during their presentations—this dynamic pair will ignite an audience’s passion to serve and inspire future young leaders to give back in their schools, local communities or abroad.
