Meet your new Global Health Student Representatives for 2019-2020!

The Undergraduate Student Advisory Committee aka “Global Health Reps” are charged to advise the Global Health Program on issues related to undergraduate education, including but not limited to courses, curriculum, instruction, student involvement opportunities, research opportunities and student programs.

This school year, the Global Health Program is excited to welcome 3 new representatives to our Student Advisory Committee that will bring in new ideas, hard work and energy as they provide themselves as resources and connections to support our global health student population at UC San Diego! Feel free to reach out to them with questions about the program and come visit them at events such as Bagels and Office Hours!
