Have you ever wondered how you could make a difference? Do you ever feel the urge to explore other parts of the world? In between exams, jobs, and extracurricular activities, it’s easy for students to get caught up in the daily stress of life. Some of us, however, have found a way to satisfy both their love for volunteering and their growing wanderlust: join MEDLIFE (a pre-approved Global Health Field Experience opportunity).
This past summer, 6 UC San Diego Global Health students immersed themselves in the Chilean culture and health care system by participating in the Chile Global Health Field School, a 7 week program, in collaboration with the UC San Diego Global Health Program and Pontificia Universidad Catolica de Chile (PUC) in Santiago.
Two UC San Diego Global Health students returned from the field this summer after completing their Field Experience with Child Family Health International (CFHI) , a non-profit organization that provides students the unique opportunity of global health education, international exposure, and a rich-immersed learning setting. Students truly learn about the Global Health challenges of their chosen setting while living in their community.
Two Global Health students share their experience…
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.
Welcome back, Tritons! I’m Ashley Emuka, your Global Health Student Representative and I would like to share some advice with you for the year.
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.
