HillTop, A History


In 2011, Columbia’s very first HillTop brought together over 100 passionate undergraduate students from over 16 universities of the northeast. That year’s conference explored the theme, “From Philosophy to Practice: Partnership as a Paradigm for Health Equity.” Speakers included Pamela W. Barnes (EngenderHealth), Peter Luckow (Tiyatien Health), Dr. Alastair Ager (Mailman School of Public Health), Dr. Bruce Charash (Doc2Dock), Christina Sass (Clinton Global Initiative), and many more!
