global health first year representatives
Hello future leaders and advocates! A little bit about me – I graduated this summer from U of T doing a specialist in Cell & Molecular Biology. One of the main takeaways from my program, is that research and learning is never conducted in a vacuum – science and progress are always founded on collaboration and knowledge sharing. Considering this, I want to facilitate inter-disciplinary communication and learning by connecting with other global health groups across campus.
Our world is increasingly becoming globalized, national issues such as: war, natural catastrophes, infectious disease, and human trafficking are no longer enclosed within a country’s borders, but rather, affect all of us. As nurses, we are uniquely positioned to be forerunners and campaigners of positive change within our local and global community. As your Global Health Representative, I want to keep you informed on current global health issues that affect health and wellness, while also displaying international advances in nursing research through newsletter or blog posts.
I intend to put together a Global Health Conference and seminars where Global Health nurses can share their diverse experiences of working internationally and providing critical humanitarian aid. To engage the student body, I am determined to organize global health volunteer opportunities to encourage student action. Thank you!
