10 Years of Global Health Master's Education
In 2018, the Institute for Global Health Sciences (IGHS) celebrated the 10th anniversary of the nation’s first Master of Science in Global Health program. To mark this milestone, IGHS held the first-ever alumni campaign and raised more than $10,000 for student support. Thank you to all the generous donors! IGHS also held a lively 10th Anniversary Reunion.
The campaign has ended, but you still have a chance to support the next 10 years of global health education! Make a gift to help ensure that the brightest and most dedicated students have access to a world-class education at UCSF, just as you did.
Teri Reynolds, MS ’10, is ‘Getting Care to Those Who Need It, and Fast’ through her work in emergency medicine at the WHO.
Katie Lesyna-Mlaponi, MS '16, is making a career of fighting for reproductive and maternal health rights.
