The Students for Global Health organization welcomes any UCSD undergraduate student interested in international health and wellness.

Our mission is to encourage any student passionate about these issues to explore ways to give back to the UCSD community and beyond through their education and future careers. To do that, S4GH helps foster communication and ongoing partnerships between UCSD student organizations and the larger community.

We are very proud of being able to provide insight into the broad field of global health through speaker panels such as our popular Quarterly Conversations events, information sessions with Academic Advisors and Student Reps, and community activities like our awareness campaigns!

Overall, this student org acts as a valuable liaison between undergraduates, advisors, faculty, the administration, and the UCSD community as a whole. And the best part? All majors are welcome!
