The University now has a central international emergency phone number to be used by ALL University travelers who are abroad for University purposes. Students, faculty, and staff who are experiencing an emergency abroad can call 612-301-CALL and get help 24/7. Learn more about how to use the number and what to do during an emergency abroad.

The Academic Health Center has formally launched the Thailand Hub based in Chiang Mai following a University of Minnesota delegation visit to Thailand in February. Built on 25 years of joint education initiatives and collaborative research, this is the AHC’s second Hub of Innovation. The Hub is guided by the Minnesota-Thailand Interest Group, a growing group comprised of representatives from the University of Minnesota and from universities and organizations in Thailand who share an interest in furthering collaborative activities and efforts in global health.

In recognition of the exceptional commitment to global health of AHC Faculty, CGHSR has launched the Global Health Faculty Associate listing. This growing list of transdisciplinary educators, researchers, and practitioners has an integral role in advancing global health at the University of Minnesota.  View the Global Health Faculty Associate webpage.

We have created a Global Health Impact Map to broadly communicate the Academic Health Center's efforts in global health as well as to facilitate researchers and learners in connecting with each other for collaboration. We are currently in the process of populating the map and database with AHC faculty led research, education/training, clinical care, and community-based activities.
