Millennium Fellowship Project: Global Health Summer School
Global Health Summer School aims to create a 2-week international summer school in the summer of 2020. The first week will consist of students learning about the basics of Global Health, how to identify Global Health challenges and come up with solutions. The second week consists of students working in teams to create a solution for problems close to home and pitch it to a panel of judges/investors. After the summer school, there will be an implementation phase where the best projects get to try out their solutions in their local communities.
