In this webinar we will discuss two of the main ways students and trainees can get involved in global health through the Consortium of Universities for Global Health (CUGH): the CUGH Trainee Advisory Committee (CUGH TAC) and the Campus Representatives Program (CRP). The CUGH TAC is a student/trainee run committee within CUGH that consists of ~25 students, trainees, and young professionals from around the world. They contribute to addressing global health challenges through CUGH activities such as the CUGH conference and committees. These issues include COVID19, racial disparities and diversity, climate change, gun violence, student debt, and other global concerns.

The CRP is a network of students who serve as representatives of CUGH on their respective campuses. The benefits of the CRP are access to a network of international Campus Reps, volunteer opportunities with CUGH TAC, and curated resources for global health students and trainees. Campus Representatives, in return, serve as a liaison between CUGH and their institution, communicating their needs and disseminating CUGH information among their peers. If you are interested in joining either group and want to learn more, please join us at our webinar where we will discuss the structure of TAC and the CRP, the membership requirements, current work, etc. ALL ARE WELCOME!
