Global health is an area for study, research, and practice that places a priority on improving health and achieving equity in health for all people worldwide. Global health emphasises transnational health issues, determinants, and solutions; involves many disciplines within and beyond the health sciences and promotes interdisciplinary collaboration; and is a synthesis of population-based prevention with individual-level clinical care – The Lancet
I am currently the Director of the Office of Global Health at the Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry at Western University in London, Ontario. In addition, I have taught courses on Global Health at the University of Waterloo, McMaster University, and at Western University. My interests in this area include the impact, experience, and training of overseas electives.
