Global Health

About

The Global Health Community aims to unify students interested in the health sciences and aspiring pre-health majors. Through participation in this community, students will gain an increased awareness of topics relating to medicine and health-related careers, as well as gain access to global health programming, resources, and support for those wishing to learn more about opportunities in the field of health sciences. This community focuses on spreading awareness of on-campus organizations and programs that gear towards subjects such as medical school, alternative medicine, genetics, health policy, and society’s role in global health.

All students, regardless of major, are invited to participate in this community as we examine the role health plays in national, global, and social issues.

The Global Health LLC is located in Dykstra Hall.
