Global Health Day

Global Health Day provides an opportunity for those engaged in global health to come together, exchange knowledge across disciplines, and make connections.

Our Goal is to champion interdisciplinary opportunities to exchange knowledge and expand abilities for the advancement of global health. We accomplish this by creating global health learning opportunities, providing scholarships at home and abroad, and supporting the development of courses to help learners prepare for and conduct global health experiences.
