One of the reasons I came to Vanderbilt for medical school was the wonderful global health opportunities available here. The medical school’s Global Health Organization (GHO) is a great way to get involved if you are interested in public health, working with underserved populations, or addressing health inequity here in the United States or internationally. Examples of some of the events we organize include monthly health fairs for Nashville’s underserved communities, World Health Week, and refugee panels. One new initiative we are trying to get started this year is a global health journal/blog that would feature all the inspiring work being done by Vanderbilt faculty and students around the world. We are always open to new ideas and initiatives and welcome your input!
Feel free to reach out to us if you are interested in joining the group (no global health experience required), or if you just want to talk more about what global health opportunities are available at Vanderbilt.
We look forward to seeing you around!
