  • Why you’re interested in global health: Global health is such an important topic because it affects us all. Epidemics, outbreaks, and health concerns occur in all reaches of the globe and can impact anyone regardless of socioeconomic standing, race, gender, sexual orientation, etc. Everyone thinks about global health as limited to undeveloped or underdeveloped areas of our world when in truth, global health concerns can be found anywhere. I am interested in global health because I want to be a part of the team that helps ensure care for all and to help prevent epidemics and illnesses that threaten us all. Illness knows no physical boundaries such as borders, so why should they impact the way we perceive and provide health care. A global approach to health care, in which the entire global population is our potential patient, is the only way to work towards a healthier planet.
