WHAT IS YLC?
The Youth Leadership Conference on Asian and Pacific Islander Health at Stanford University is a four day conference led by the Asian Liver Center at the Stanford University School of Medicine. High school students come from all over the world to sharpen their leadership skills for effecting change in local, national, and global communities.
Conference participants will meet other students interested in making a difference in public health. Leading medical experts, professors, and policymakers will speak on issues of Asian and Pacific Islander health. Students will also have the opportunity to apply the skills they gain and work together in a team outreach project.
