Global Health Scholars

Who we are: We are a select group of undergraduate students who want to make an impact on public health. We are active partners in confronting and studying health-related issues in a global context.

What we do: We read and discuss global health literature, attend presentations, compete in case competitions, and work in the local community to understand and improve health. We also partner with the Hser Ner Moo Community Center to learn and volunteer with the local refugee population. Global Health Scholars have also had opportunities to work internationally, including trips to India, Ghana, and Peru.

Committees:  As a way of ensuring that the feedback and effort of all members goes into planning the meetings and future of Global Health Scholars, three committees have been established:

  • Community Outreach
    • Community Outreach will create a conference poster for the Case Competition, invite guest speakers, and lead discussions on Grand Round presentations.
  • Scholarly Dialogue
    • The Scholarly Dialogue committee will select readings, videos, and topics for the Global Health Scholars to discuss.
  • Resettlement Initiative
    • The Resettlement Initiative will facilitate discussion about and oversee our volunteer work with community partners, and research/present on refugee issues to other Global Health Scholars and at the spring Refugee Symposium.
