Utah Valley Global Health Group
Posted by chads on October 25, 2007
A few months ago some friends and I started the Utah Valley Global Health Group. The idea is quite simple: we were just looking for a place (physical and/or cyber) where people who think that the current global health situation cannot be can get together. This past meeting, we introduced a four-prong mission:
1. Encourage collaboration between individuals, institutions, universities, NGOs, and others involved in global health.
2. Encourage the implementation of evidence-based global health interventions through education.
3. Increase the public’s knowledge of and interest in global health issues through political advocacy, newspaper editorials, activities, etc.
4. Provide a venue for people recently interested in global health to network, learn of opportunities, get a mentor, etc.
If you have any additions or changes to this “mission statement,” chime in below.
