Watch the Welcome Message from Global Health Program, Dr. Thomas Csordas:
Julia Herskovic, a third year student who is a Physiology and Neuroscience major and a Global Health minor, spent six months interning at one of our local food banks, Feeding America San Diego (FASD), which aims to provide healthy food to low income families in the community.
As an intern at FASD, Julia taught the community about nutrition in enjoyable ways, one of them being healthy cooking classes for churches and middle schools. When Julia was not out in the field, she was preparing materials for her outreach programs. Through these tasks Julia was able to develop various professional skills and realize how great the impact of volunteerism is in the health community.
Spring Quarterly Conversation in Global Health

We had yet another very successful Quarterly Conversation in Global Health on Monday, May 16th on the Topic of Refugee Health!

Celia Breuer shares her experience attending the Clinton Global Initiative University (CGHIU), a meeting where students, university representatives, topic experts, and celebrities come together to discuss and develop innovative solutions to pressing global challenges.Students create their own Commitments to Action that address issues on campus, in local communities, or around the world. Since 2008, students have made more than 6,250 commitments, and nearly $3 million in funding has been awarded to these commitment-makers through the Clinton Global Initiative University. Celia Breuer is one of the fine young students who received a fellowship from this prestigious event.
Global Health Student, Rozhon Badiozamani, shares her experience attending the UC Global Health Institute/Consortium of Universities for Global Health (UCGHI/CUGH) Conference, an innovative, student-driven Satellite Session.
Hello! My name is Rozhon Badiozamani and I am currently a fourth-year Global Health major. I attended this conference as the only Student Ambassador from UCSD, and was joined by 16 other undergraduate and graduate students from across the UC system. My job was to attend session, be present and an active attendee throughout, and share my experience with my community. Although I’m not an expert, by any means, on how to be successful in global health, I’d like to share with you just a few things I learned from participating in such an engaging and eye-opening conference.
