Message From the Team

The Program for Education in Global and Population Health, better known as Global Pop, seeks to support the emergence of a new generation of leaders in global and population health, abroad and at home, through pedagogy, research and field experiences.

Graduate students from across the CUIMC are exposed to several dimensions that expand from purely health-specific to include social, legal, economic, governmental, environmental, and cultural, all of which greatly impact health outcomes and inform our understanding of what Global and Population Health is.

Wherever possible, we also seek to link students’ international or domestic global and population health experiences with efforts to improve the health care of vulnerable populations.

Our website highlights the student projects we sponsored through our Summer Research program in 2022. Students and mentors traveled and/or embraced a remote approach to developing their global and population health research work, with outstanding results.

Please join us in congratulating the students, mentors, donors, and staff who made all these projects possible.
