Global health is necessary to address global inequality and to help people around the world leave poverty and live longer and healthier lives.
I believe it is my duty to improve global health by bringing the healthcare that’s taken for granted in some regions of the world to other areas that lack those resources

Global health is critical to understanding the lives of all people and becoming better informed global citizens. As the world becomes increasingly interconnected, it is paramount that we work to improve healthcare for all!


Nicholas Slimmon,
VP External

I believe that as informed global citizens, it is our responsibility to remain aware of public health issues plaguing other nations, and seek out avenues of providing support in whatever way we can

Global health is a field where we can collaborate to improve healthcare access and bridge the health disparities that exist in our world today. It is imperative that I use my position of privilege to take action to address health issues, especially in the world's more marginalized communities
