Global Health Videos

There is no better way to learn than by “doing.” This experiential learning approach is a vital aspect of how we prepare our graduates for challenging and rewarding public health careers at home in the US and abroad.

This page features a number of videos that highlight the work and learning experiences students and faculty are engaging in around the world.
