The Global Health Work Group (GHWG) Leadership Team consists of two SPH faculty co-chairs and a graduate assistant as the coordinator. Together, they manage the GHWG’s membership and are constantly working to provide faculty, community, and student members with opportunities and resources in global health.
GHWG Advisory Committee
The GHWG Advisory Committee serves as a liaison between each SPH division and the GHWG. In addition to facilitating communication and promoting the GHWG within each SPH division, the Advisory Committee provides guidance and advice on GHWG projects and events.
GHWG SPH Faculty Members
Because the GHWG is housed under the SPH, we invite all SPH faculty involved or interested in global health to join as GHWG faculty members.
GHWG Community Members
We are pleased to include community members in the GHWG because global health is not limited to the SPH. If you are interested or experienced in global health and are UMN faculty outside of the SPH, staff at the SPH or UMN, alumni of the SPH, or a community member, we invite you to join the GHWG as community members. If you receive our emails as a GHWG community member and would like to be featured on this membership page, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org! We’d love to highlight the breadth of experiences our community members contribute to the GHWG!
GHWG Student Members
If you are a current undergraduate, graduate, professional, or doctoral student and you are interested in learning more about global health and relevant opportunities/events, we encourage you to join the GHWG as student members!
