Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine’s Center for Global Health, in partnership with the Northwestern University School of Continuing Studies, is offering a new online Master of Science in Global Health program starting fall of 2014. The degree program offers tools needed to become leaders in global health care and address some of the most important, far-reaching and urgent health issues of the 21st century. Nearly 40 infectious diseases (such as AIDS and West Nile) have emerged since 1973. Diseases that were once suppressed, such as malaria and tuberculosis, are again on the rise and many lives are lost in vulnerable, underserved populations due to largely treatable illnesses. Faster and more fluid movement of people means serious health threats often cross national borders.
