The NYU College of Global Public Health’s global health program (Global Health) is pleased to announce the publication of the inaugural edition of its annual progress report for academic year 2017-2018. The report was edited by Dr. Chris Dickey and Mr. Jason F. Arnold.
The report celebrates the recent accomplishments of the global health faculty, staff, and students by listing notable presentations and publications. The report also contains a welcome letter by the program’s director (Dr. Dickey), as well as news articles from current master’s students. For example, Ms. Kiera Bloch, MPH alumna, and colleagues discuss a homegrown school feeding program in Ethiopia, as well as its potential impact on both nutrition and health.
The report also highlights the service and achievements of Global Health faculty and staff by listing their leadership roles with national and international organizations. Several current global health initiatives and labs within the department are also discussed.
Global Health is one of the fastest growing programs at NYU’s College of Global Public Health as well as the largest. In the Fall of 2018, the program welcomed their largest cohort of incoming students to date, and enrolled over 150 master’s students in the following concentrations: (1) Global Health, (2) Environmental Health Sciences, and (3) the online Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) MPH. The program also offers certificate programs for those students seeking to continue their education through distance learning. Specifically, the program offers a Certificate in Applied Global Public Health and an Advanced Certificate in Health & Human Rights. These certificates are designed to fill the gaps between burgeoning public health theory and operational skills in the field for professionals.
Students and friends of the program can also pick up copies of the report at the upcoming American Public Health Association (APHA) annual conference in San Diego, California November 10-14 (Booth 710).
