Global Health Ethics and Human Rights: Practical Applications to Multicultural Health Issues At Home and Abroad (2008)

Drs. Edward Gotfried, director of the Center for Global Health, and Edward Cho, associate director, attended the GHEC meeting, “Global Health Ethics and Human Rights: Practical Applications to Multicultural Health Issues At Home and Abroad,” in Sacramento, Calif., on April 3 - 5, 2008. The Global Health Educational Consortium (GHEC) is a nonprofit organization of health professionals, educators, and institutions committed to addressing the health needs and human rights of populations around the world and to improving the ability of the global workforce to meet the needs of underserved populations. It accomplishes this mission through the promotion, development and expansion of high quality, culturally sensitive global health education for faculty, students and professionals worldwide.

GHEC works to promote and facilitate global health education in four areas – curriculum and training materials development, clinical training, career development, and education policy. For example, the GHEC:

  • facilitates international educational experiences and exchanges
  • encourages the development of curricula and teaching materials
  • promotes sharing of resources, ideas and information among its members
  • promotes faculty development and global health career tracks
  • facilitates short term work/service/learning opportunities for students and faculty
  • develops and advocates policies relevant to global health education
  • develops and maintains collaborative partnerships with affinity organizations.

The GHEC Web site provides additional information about the event.
