Stanford University School of Medicine students created the Organization for Global Health (OGH) to increase awareness of international health issues by educating at home and assisting abroad.
OGH students facilitate participation in issues surrounding international health through travel fellowships and NGO networking. They also stimulate passion and interest in global health through tangible community-initiated, community-centered projects abroad.
Whether helping devise new preventive strategies, gaining hands-on clinical experience or conducting field research, members of OGH are advocates for improved health care worldwide.
