Goal, Objectives and Principles

 

The Office of Global Health's mission is to reduce global health inequities through local and multi-institutional collaborative partnerships in education, research, patient care and community engagement. Our vision is to train the next generation of global health leaders and address local and global health inequities across neighborhoods and nations.Boys smiling

We hope to accomplish this through an unprecedented collaboration among the College’s over 25 departments, other outstanding Milwaukee-based institutions, and premier partners across the world.

Our goal is to develop a sustainable platform of local and global health partnerships to support and grow education, research, patient care and community engagement training and collaborative activities of our faculty and trainees.
