During this global health program, you will learn from professionals in the field about current approaches to promoting health, preventing disease, and helping communities in need around the world.
Academic Program Overview:
In the first week, students will work to solve global health challenges by turning everyday materials into innovative solutions to combat disease, malnutrition, outbreaks, or other public health challenges.
In the second week, students put their skills to the test in a Global Health competition where they work in teams to come up with a realistic proposal for a simulated challenge.
