Deadline Extended to 8/15: Trainee Campus Representatives

The TAC is a group of trainees involved in global health and selected by CUGH to provide a trainee perspective that helps guide the organization’s work. We seek to ensure that CUGH’s programs benefit from the rich experiences of trainees through acting on their input, counsel, and products in order to build a more robust community. The committee is composed of trainees from undergraduate and graduate levels, across disciplines, who share an interest in global health. The trainee perspective will aid in advancing CUGH’s mission of building interdisciplinary collaborations across research, education, service and advocacy and facilitate the sharing of knowledge to address global health challenges, create equity, and reduce health disparities globally.

In pursuit of these goals and to further elicit input from the broader trainee community, we asking for nominations of one Campus Representative from each CUGH member institution. We are looking for Campus Representatives that will act as the liaison between TAC and the global health student body at their university. This Representative will be pivotal in reaching out to groups active in global health at their institution in order to build a larger network of trainees for collaboration.
