Global Health Corps

The Global Health Corps provides theory to practice learning opportunities for health promotion and education students to design, implement, and evaluate health promotion and education programs with underserved diverse populations in the United States and abroad.  

In 2002, the UNI Global Health Corps (GHC) was named a Family Friendly Workplace by the Family and Children's Council.  The award was received because of their commitment to women, children and families, and for its emphasis on wellness and a family-friendly environment.  About 80% of GHC clients are women and children, and include refugees, immigrants, minorities, the elderly, rural farm families, the homeless and others with special public health needs.  Since it began in 1996, GHC has served more than 30,000 at-risk clients.  For more information contact Michele Devlin (michele.devlin@uni.edu).
