YFG ARCHIVE 
4-6 October 2017, Bad Hofgastein
In 2017, 70 young professionals working in the field of health from EU Member States and beyond have been awarded the scholarship. They will participate in the #EHFG2017 conference as Young Forum Gastein scholars and will be introduced to the YFG Network.
This year, the YFG Network is supported by the Bosch Foundation, ASPHER, ECDC, Forum Alpbach, Going International and the European Health Forum Gastein.
The scholars have a busy schedule during the EHFG conference which includes participating in the general conference programme as well as attending specific Young Forum Gastein meetings and working groups.
This year Young Gasteiners can expand their knowledge in a health advocacy workshop and a skills-building session. Mentoring sessions with senior EHFG delegates representing our four pillars and a career talk are again in the programme. Additionally, Young Gasteiners will collaborate in diverse inter-professional and inter-cultural groups, facilitate networking and encourage thinking about the inherent issues of important European healthcare topics such as health diplomacy and policy and practice.
Young Gasteiners are playing an increasingly important role both in the organisation of the conference and in increasing the visibility of the YFG initiative. At this year's EHFG they will also join as speakers, panellists or moderators in a number of sessions:
Two Young Gasteiners have evaluated the applications for the European Health Award 2017 and will be moderating the Award Ceremony.
