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.
The first Quarterly Conversations in Global Health of the academic year, entitled, “Gender Inequalities from a Health Perspective” took place on November 2nd, 2016 at the Great Hall, International House at UC San Diego.
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.

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.
