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 ghsph@umn.edu! 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! Here are a few students who have been involved with global health at the SPH in the past:
