Global Health Corps - Information Sessions

Are you a senior or recent graduate who is passionate about building a movement for health equity? Do you believe that health is a human right?
 
Learn about the Global Health Corps (GHC), a program that aims to mobilize a global community of emerging leaders to build the movement for health equity. GHC works to strengthen this movement by recruiting, training, and supporting the movement’s future leaders, diversifying the pool of young people working in global health, and amplifying the impact of individuals through the formation of a strong community of leaders.
 
GHC provides opportunities for young professionals from diverse backgrounds to work on the frontlines of the fight for global health equity in yearlong fellowships. GHC fellows are currently working in Rwanda, Burundi, Uganda, Malawi, Zambia and the United States. They have a measurable impact on the health of the communities in which they work, and draw upon that experience and the GHC alumni network to deepen their impact throughout their careers.
 
We are holding five information sessions. Please RSVP to scholarships@umd.edu to indicate which you plan to attend or to schedule an individual meeting.
