Global Health Studies Program Steering Committee Members, 2013-14
GHSP policies, courses, and program offerings are determined by a steering committee consisting of faculty from a wide range of disciplines, including medical humanities, public health, nursing, dentistry, history, geography, anthropology, and women's studies, as well as P&S staff and students who meet as a body at least twice each semester. The steering committee also uses these meetings to evaluate all aspects of the program.
