Jeanne Moseley is a Senior Lecturer in the Division of Nutritional Sciences (DNS) and the Director for the Global Health Program. She works closely with Division faculty and undergraduate students from across the university to teach, develop, and evaluate curriculum for the Global and Public Health Sciences (GPHS) Major and the undergraduate minor in Global Health. She is the lead instructor for several DNS courses and advises students in the GPHS major and minor in Global Health.
Jeanne is responsible for the direct administration and implementation of Global Health partnerships and summer programs in the Tanzania and Zambia. She also supports the development and coordination of additional student experiential learning opportunities in India, the Unites States, and other locales. Her current areas of interest are global and public health curriculum development, the pedagogy of global service learning, student leadership development, and the critical dimensions of reciprocity in the context of international partnerships and collaborations.
Mia Haller is the Global and Public Health Fellow. Mia graduated from Cornell University in May 2019 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology and Society, and minors in Global Health and Nutrition and Health. She was initially drawn to the Global Health program because it provided her with the opportunity to apply her knowledge outside of the classroom. Mia was a participant in the Tanzania Global Health Summer Program in 2018, where she conducted research on the social vulnerability of women among infertile couples. Upon returning for her senior year, Mia worked as a Tanzania program assistant and returned to Moshi to assist with the program.
The Global Health Student Advisory Board (GHSAB) is a diverse team of dedicated and enthusiastic upperclassmen who represent the Global Health Program and assist with program development and projects like the Global Health Case Competition and the Global and Public Health Experiential Learning Symposium. GHSAB works to create spaces for students in the Global and Public Health Sciences major and Global Health minor to build community through campus events, mentorship, and more.

The Cornell Global Health Program offers students who successfully participate in one of the Global Health Summer Programs the opportunity to serve as a student program assistant upon their return to Cornell's campus. These student program assistants provide programmatic and administrative support for the programs, and act as leaders for the next cohort of students participating in the program. Program assistants play an active role in peer facilitation, and are involved with the program through TA-ships to lead the Pre-Departure Seminars in the Spring semester for each Global Health Summer Program. They may also travel with the student cohort to assist with the abroad program.
Each program assistant works closely with the Global Health Program teaching team, receiving extensive mentorship throughout the academic year and building leadership skills. All student program assistants receive training in facilitation of critical reflection, leadership, group development, intercultural competency, and risk management through a series of training seminars. They then have the opportunity to apply their training on campus as teaching assistants, or to travel back to the field with the next cohort of students. This leadership role is an excellent opportunity for students to serve as peer mentors, and to guide students through their shared experiences abroad.
Following their experiences with the Global Health Program at Cornell, our alumni go on to engage in a wide variety of disciplines and careers related to global and public health. Many of our students pursue further education, whether that be to obtain a Master of Public Health, a Medical Degree, or a Law Degree. Others move directly into the realms of research, non-profit work, teaching, or the Peace Corps.
Alumni actively support the Cornell Global Health Program (GHP) in many ways. Some members of our alumni network act as mentors to current undergraduates and judges for the Case Competition. Other Cornell and GHP alumni have created travel grants to support student participation in our Global Health Summer Programs. We welcome and encourage alumni engagement.
