Global Health at Princeton University

Breaking Down Boundaries

Princeton’s vibrant Global Health Program brings domestic and international health issues to life through interdisciplinary research and teaching, hands-on learning and a focus on policy. The program is administered by the Center for Health and Wellbeing, an interdisciplinary unit within the Woodrow Wilson School.

The Global Health Program serves the broader Princeton community and offers students the opportunity to earn a certificate in Global Health and Health Policy. GHP is a hub for students interested in global health — whether they are seeking to participate in a summer internship in the United States or abroad, take health-related courses, find support for health-related thesis research, get involved with Princeton’s campus activities and events, or pursue plans for a career in global health.

  • We recently had the opportunity to sit down with Professor Hirsch to learn how she interrogates the upstream and contextual level factors that affect health and wellbeing behaviors and outcomes in her academic work as well as how she is working toward advancing justice and amplifying her impact through community organizing.
  • Welcome, Sebastián Ramírez! Sebastián joins the Global Health Program as a postdoctoral research associate. In this spotlight, we talked with Sebastián about his background in anthropology, how he thinks about identity and place, and his research with internally displaced people in Colombia. Below is our conversation, edited for space.
  • In this spotlight, we talked with Jerry about what perspective and expertise nurses bring to global health challenges, the importance of cultural humility in global health work, and why he started the African Interdisciplinary Health Conference.
  • The Global Health and Health Policy Senior Thesis Prize is awarded in recognition of the most outstanding thesis written by a student earning a certificate in Global Health and Health Policy.
