The Global Health Program was established in January 2010 and is housed with the Institute for Health and Society at Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW). Our vision is to train the next generation of global health leaders and address local and global health inequities across neighborhoods and nations. Our mission is to reduce global health inequities through local and global multi-institutional collaborative partnerships in education, research, patient care and community engagement. 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.

Week 2013 Recap
Thank you for all those who participated in the Medical College of Wisconsin’s Global Health Week 2013. This third annual week presented 35 activities that took place here at the MCW, Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin, Froedtert Hospital , the VA, and Carroll University.
Special to the week was a visit by Martin Cetron, MD, Director of Global Migration and Quarantine at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Captain of the U.S. Public Health Service. His visit included a special Global Health Pathway Core Session on Emerging Infectious Diseases and the viewing of the documentary film American Heart, which documents the lives of refugees as they try to navigate the health care system. Dr. Cetron met with members of the Milwaukee Area Refugee Consortium and gave a Pediatrics Grand Rounds talk on Migration and Health in a Globalized World.
Please consider joining us next year for the fourth annual Global Health Week: December 1-5, 2014. If you are interested in planning a Global Health Week activity, please contact Global Health Program Manager, Tifany Frazer.
