The goal of the Green Mountain Global Forum is to promote greater awareness and understanding of global issues by bringing knowledgeable and thought provoking speakers to the Mad River Valley. We hope to encourage higher levels of public concern and involvement, foster connections in the community and a sense of solidarity with the outside world, and inspire change and action.

We strive to appeal to a wide audience of our Vermont community, keeping all presentations free and open to the public and welcome the support and participation of the community. For directions to venues see below right.

On Tuesday, October 30th at 7 pm at the Big Picture Theater the Green Mountain Global Forum will introduce "The Medicines Movement" with a presentation by Monica Cahilly. This presentation will outline the complex path by which medicines make their way to the consumer and highlight the importance of consumer awareness and involvement to help more rapidly identify risks and ultimately ensure that safe, effective, and affordable medicines are available to more of us. She will outline how thoughtful and active consumer engagement—in supporting enhanced product labeling initiatives and reporting product complaints and adverse events—may help improve the quality of medicines available to all patients globally.
