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.

Activities will take place up to and including the evening of Friday 6 October, with travel home on Saturday 7 October. Depending on flight availability some participants may need to arrive on Monday, 2 October 2017.
