Global Health Society

Global Health

The Global Health Society (GHS) at the University of Pennsylvania seeks to build awareness of and engagement in global health issues for all Masters of Public Health students here at Penn, and particularly for the Global Health Track students. We hope to increase opportunities for global health research and service, including fieldwork and Capstone opportunities. We also work to increase communication between the MPH program and the other schools and student groups at Penn that have international interest and reach.

The GHS is supported by the Global Health Track coordinators, Dr. Alison Buttenheim, PhD, MBA and Dr. Carol McLaughlin, MD, MPH, who bring a wealth of international experience and insight to the GHS.
