We believe in reliable knowledge sharing as an important contributor to

A Student’s Voice -The stories of students we share are either currently students or newly graduated. Our goal with this blog is to share stories of their experiences and ask them about why planetary and global health is important to them. Through sharing their stories, students will also tell us about what drew them into this field.
