Interested in being part of combating a disease such as the Zika virus or even Ebola? Want to be part of reducing health disparities around the world? If yes, the field of Global Health is for you!
In partnership with Global Health Fellows Program II, FACES for the Future Coalition will show you the way into the Global Health field through our three-part webinar series, Global Health Pathways. This webinar is for people of all ages- whether you’re in high school or in college- because it’s never too early to get involved.
We connect you with current global health professionals, provide you with a list of skills and knowledge you’ll need to get into the field, and hopefully inspire you to get out there and join the global health workforce and make a difference!
This series is composed of three webinars:
1. Your Toolkit: In this first webinar, we discuss what skills/capabilities it takes to become a successful global health worker. You will also hear how those skills are applied in the field.
2. Your Stepping Stones: This webinar introduces education and practical overseas experience necessary to be a competitive candidate in the global health field.
3. Your Options: In the final webinar, we have a career panel of global health professionals speaking on their career path as well as their reason for joining global health.
