Congratulations Class of 2018!

Victoria Chen and Nina Martin | The Johns Hopkins Center for Global Health

This week marks the close of the academic year and graduation festivities across Johns Hopkins University.  At the Johns Hopkins Center for Global Health (CGH), we celebrate 85 students who received CGH grants in 2017 to complete global health learning experiences around the world. Students and trainees are at the heart of what we do, through supporting foundational experiences - and the resources needed to optimize those opportunities - that translate theory into practice and build connections spanning cultures and contexts.

This past year, our grantees went to 30 countries on projects ranging the breadth of human health – including tuberculosis, HIV/AIDS, chronic diseases, maternal health, mobile health development, and health behavior and communication, to name a few. You can see their reflections and photos on their individual webpages. Our students were also a vital part of Global Health Day 2018, presenting their experiences to the JHU community. You can read our full recap below!

As this academic year ends, we celebrate all graduates, and wish them the best in their future work to ensure  good health to all.

CGH would especially like to thank Emily Nagourney (MSPH ’18) and Victoria Chen (BA ’18) for their amazing work with us this year!
