Vanderbilt Master of Public Health, Global Health Track Class of 2022 (not all are pictured)
Each year, medical and graduate students prove that global health isn’t only about seeing patients. The work of improving healthcare requires work at all levels and across many fields. For this reason, the Vanderbilt Institute for Global Health offers the Graduate Certificate in Global Health, an interdisciplinary program that draws students from across campus to study global health issues through the lenses of their field of study.
At the end of March, the Vanderbilt Institute for Global Health received a long-awaited message from Liberia – the 40-foot shipping container of medical books and other laboratory equipment donated by the Vanderbilt School of Medicine had survived it’s journey across the ocean and arrived at its final destination, the University of Liberia. The letter signaled the end of a nearly year-long donation effort at Vanderbilt and the beginning of new opportunities for current and future medical students in Liberia.
