This afternoon, the 5th annual Clinton Global Initiative commenced with the Opening Plenary led by President Obama. It is such an exciting event for global issues with the world's elites--governmental, nonprofit leaders, private sector leaders, and celebrities to name a few--who are committed to health, infrastructure, women and girls, development, and the environment.

We are proud to announce that Hope Through Healing Hands has pledged a Commitment at CGI this year. We hope to grow our Global Health Leaders Program over the next few years to place health professionals in underserved clinics and to train community health workers around the world.

For the first evening we attended a few receptions. Along the way we ran into friends, new friends, and colleagues. See a few photos and names below.

We hope you'll follow our time here in NYC. It will be exciting.
