" I envision a world with health justice, one in which everyone has access to the resources they need to stay healthy as well as quality and affordable healthcare. However, we cannot talk about health without first addressing poverty, education, clean water access, food insecurity, and other social determinants. Through the Millennium Fellowship, I am excited to not only develop my own skills but also join an international cohort of changemakers that seek to address all of the various SDGs, as I believe that together we can pave the way to a healthier world.

Millennium Fellowship Project: GloHub
GloHub is an online platform that seeks to democratize access to global health resources and research and foster interdisciplinary and intergenerational collaboration between all individuals interested in global health. This
web platform is a comprehensive resource for anyone looking to learn more
about and get involved in the field of global health, thus developing the next generation of global health changemakers and empowering
them to enact change in their local communities. By providing digestible
annotated bibliographies of the academic literature in the field, we will make the field
accessible to all, regardless of educational status. GloHub will also showcase the
incredible work being done by global health organizations and non-profit organizations in our local and national communities, as well as share resources for students to get involved. Later we will be hosting global health
networking and informational events on our website as well as developing a collaborative platform for global health changemakers to connect and share their work across the globe, thus unifying and ensuring everyone works as a coordinated team in the fight for health justice.
