Background on the CGH-SAB
The Center for Global Health Student Advisory Board (SAB) works to advance the next generation of global health leaders at the University and to promote interdisciplinary discussion of global health on Grounds. The SAB is a complement to the Center for Global Health and reflects CGH investment in student initiative and leadership. Since its inception, CGH SAB has developed into the central student driven engine for global health advocacy and scholarship at the University of Virginia and serves as a primary resource for students interested in getting involved with global health work at UVa.
Members are expected to attend our bimonthly meetings and to engage in active involvement through event attendance and planning outside of these meeting times. This includes attending as many CGH events that fit within your academic schedule and advocating for CGH events.
There are four primary committees within the SAB:
Global Health on Grounds
: Plans and hosts various events around Grounds, including speakers, discussions, journal clubs, and more, focusing on a multitude of Global Health issues
Global Health Month:
Designs, plans, and executes a dinner series throughout the month to increase awareness of and stimulate discussion about various global health issues
Global Health Case Competition:
Plans and hosts the annual Global Health Case Competition
Technology and Health
: Plans various events to engage the technology community in global health
