Students for Global Health Club

UO Students for Global Health meets on Wednesdays at 6pm in Straub 251.

We are a student group devoted to social justice and global health equity. We work particularly against diseases that most adversely affect people living in poverty and the conditions that make them vulnerable by raising awareness and funds on campus. Through the student network Partners in Health Engage, we raise money and awareness for health related causes at the local, national and global levels. We meet weekly to learn, discuss, and plan events. We’d love to have you at our meetings!

Makaela Press

My name is Makaela Press and I am a senior majoring in International Studies and minoring in Global health and Legal Studies at the University of Oregon. Throughout my time as an undergraduate I have had the opportunity to study abroad twice. Last fall I spent three and a half months in Jordan focusing on public health, refugees, and humanitarian action and this past summer I spent two months in Ecuador learning about women’s reproductive healthcare in Quito through clinical shadowing. I am also the current Partners in Health Liaison for Students for Global Health (SGH).
