EADG is an organization formed by a group of Ethiopian diaspora health care professionals (mainly medical doctors with different specialties from all over the world) who are trying to establish an economically sustainable, center of excellence hospital that will deliver an internationally accredited standard of care and become a catalyst for change in how health care is delivered in Ethiopia.

This conference will update EADG members and others in the latest knowledge of medicine
