DGHI students, faculty and families are passionate about science! Here are a few photos from last weekend’s March for Science. DGHI faculty member Melissa Watt shared, “I took my children to March for Science in Raleigh, because I wanted them to appreciate and celebrate the role of science in our everyday lives. By marching, I hope that I am conveying to them the importance of showing up, speaking up, and advocating for what they believe in.” #DGHI #GlobalHealth #Science #MarchForScience #MarchForScienceRaleigh

When MSc-GH student Dilani Logan went to a conference in February, she expected to learn a lot about tech solutions for improving the efficacy of health systems. And she did. But she also learned something unexpected about the intersection between health technology and global health. Read her blog post by following the link in our bio!

“You can’t make change until you understand all the little problems that contribute to the big problem,” junior global health major Hope Arcuri reflected, “and that inspired me to learn as much as I could about global health.” Learn more about Hope's global health path in our latest student profile.
