Global Health

Our Global Health Team cares about global issues related to health and the environment. This dynamic team of students adopts a peer to peer education method to talk to students and staff on campus about travel medicine, rnvironmental health, fair trade, social determinants of health and many more.

Meet our team at our weekly event Global Health Break, where you can get free fair trade coffee and learn more about global health. See the upcoming events tab on the main page for more details.
