DGH students dreaming of making a positive difference in the world. One group of students was not content to wait until after graduation, so they joined the Global Health Justice Group. In June, Global Health Justice launched a website to amplify the voices and narratives from the Global South which address structural inequities and fundamental political and economic drivers of health that are often absent in the conventional global health discourse.
This fall, the University of Washington Department of Global Health (DGH) welcomes 59 new graduate students from around the world to partake in MPH, DrGH, and PhD programs.
