Global Health Corps Info Sessions

January 14 (Monday), 12 Noon (Lunch provided: RSVP to fellowships@northwestern.edu to be included in the food order))

Caitlin Callahan, Northwestern Global Health alumna '12, is coming to campus to speak on her experiences since graduation working for the Global Health Corps.

GHC provides opportunities for young professionals from diverse backgrounds to work on the frontlines of the fight for global health equity. Fellows have a measurable impact on the health of the communities in which they work, and draw upon that experience and the GHC alumni network to deepen their impact throughout their careers.

** Increasing the impact of great organizations today: Fellows work with high-impact organizations in year-long paid positions. During their fellowship year, fellows make a significant and measurable contribution to the placement organization and the target population.
** Training and supporting the leaders of tomorrow: Global Health Corps will create a pipeline of young leaders for the global health equity movement. Fellows participate in a wide range of activities aimed at increasing their effectiveness as practitioners and their development as leaders, both during and after theirfellowship year.
** Building a global community of changemakers: Fellows build a set of shared values, commitment and skills that they carry well beyond the fellowship year. The GHC community serves as a source of opportunity and strength throughout fellows’ lives and careers  .

Organized by International Program Development (IPD) and the Office of Fellowships.
