Global Health Interest Group


Welcome to the UAMS Global Health Interest Group (GHIG) page!  The GHIG was founded by the Office of Global Health.

GHIG works to bring all UAMS students together in a multidisciplinary effort to raise our local and global standard of health, through service, research, education, and community partnerships. We are committed to engaging disenfranchised patient populations, promoting global health equity, increasing cultural competence among health professionals, and participating in sustainable and ethical volunteerism.

Want to be added to the GHIG listserv to be kept in the loop about our upcoming events? E-mail us at and we would be happy to include you in our mailings!

We are also on Facebook! Check out our Students for Global Health group. Anyone is welcome to join!!
