Global Health

GSC seeks to nurture campus-wide cooperation on curricular and programmatic initiatives related to global health. Our aim is to promote the multidisciplinary and transdisciplinary study of global health among students and faculty by creating spaces for collaboration among scholars. In particular, we seek to understand the global burden of disease, social determinants of health, and treatment disparities from transnational and historical perspectives that are also attentive to the varied cultural and behavioral elements of health.
