UMass Global Health Student Association

The Global Health Student Association exists as a forum for students to engage with Global Health professionals and projects around the world.

Mission Statement

The Global Health Student Association is an organization designed to create an awareness and an active dialogue surrounding relevant global health topics and issues. This association will serve as a liaison between students and professionals in the field of Global Health. Our organization’s mission is to increase awareness of global health issues and promote opportunities for students to work in the field of global health, and collaborate with members of the campus and larger global health community. Each semester we will host discussions with guest speakers, and allow students the opportunity to engage with developing research and advancements in the field. The Global Health Student Association welcomes anyone with a passion or curiosity for Global Health with any level of interest or experience in the topic.
