Nutritional Sciences Global Health Program

Interview with Dr. Stoltzfus

The DNS Global Health Program offers students from any field of study to explore and apply global health knowledge in the classroom and through experiential learning. The program is directed by Professor Rebecca Stoltzfus and supported by Jeanne Moseley, the Associate Director. Faculty from across disciplines and dedicated student leaders are also integral to the program. 

We define global health as research, service, and training that address health problems that transcend national boundaries and disproportionately affect the resource-poor. Our mission is to engage new researchers and practitioners in the field of global health and to establish new and unique relationships that foster a multidisciplinary approach to solving global health problems.

Global Health ConnectionsUpon completion of the Global Health Minor, we expect students to:

Analyze global health problems, issues and controversies using multiple disciplinary perspectives and conceptual frameworks
knowledge from academic study and experiential learning toward being active and informed citizens in a global community.
the capacity to critically reflect on one's own values, ethics, assumptions and actions in the context of cultures, collaborations and institutions.
the capacity to collaborate across differences (e.g. cultural, social, personal, economic, values, religious).
