Message from the Chief

wael-small.jpgThe Division of Global Health combines the expertise of all the other divisions that are related to global health into one division. Our multidisciplinary division has faculty with training backgrounds in epidemiology, environmental health, health psychology, biostatistics, and family medicine. We are fortunate to have such a unique mix of talented faculty who are well-respected in their respective fields. A few of our faculty are also multicultural and grew up in countries as diverse as Ecuador, China, Iraq, Afghanistan, and Congo that provides a rich environment for a division in global health.
