Global REACH's mission is to facilitate health research, education, and collaboration among the University of Michigan Medical School faculty, students, and our global partners for the benefit of communities worldwide.
The Center is devoted to interdisciplinary research that advances the learning of Michigan faculty and students, as well as informs policy makers on issues arising from our increasingly globalized world.
Well-grounded training programs provide ongoing opportunities for hands-on learning. Research in all five departments brings students into the established faculty projects to improve the health of populations on every continent.
SEGH was formed at SPH in Fall 2007. The original goal was to focus on new management and policy solutions to poor health and poverty. The group has since expanded to include all areas of Public Health.
The Global REACH Faculty Associate program was created to help coalesce the many faculty within the Medical School interested in global health work. This program will endeavor to build the University of Michigan Medical global health community.
