GHI Ambassadors Programme: Empowering Change
The GHI Ambassadors Programme empowers selected members to serve as front‐line representatives for GHI. Ambassadors invite scientists in their regions or countries to enroll as GHI members, foster new opportunities for information-sharing, and identify specialists to comment on consensus documents and scienced-based communications produced by the association.
