Global Health Student Advisory Board

The University of Minnesota's Global Health Student Advisory Board (GHSAB) is an interprofessional global health student group. This committee of student representatives from graduate and professional programs across the Health Sciences works to educate and mobilize the next generation of socially responsible global health professionals.

GHSAB meets once per month between October and March, advises the Center for Global Health and Social Responsibility (CGHSR) on programs and activities, and promotes ethical student initiatives and opportunities for learning within global health systems. Applications are open in September of each school year.
