What is GHSIG?

The Global Health Student Interest Group (GHSIG) is an association of UIC students, faculty, and staff who share an interest in global health.

Mission Statement

The Global Health Student Interest Group is dedicated to learning, educating, and promoting awareness about global health affairs. We are composed of students from all divisions within the School of Public Health, and we welcome and encourage dialogue with students, faculty, and staff across the campus. We view our community as both local and global.


Membership is open to all students at the School of Public Health and other University of Illinois at Chicago students, faculty, and staff with an interest in global health and GHSIG activities.
