I cut my institutional teeth at the Dalhousie University Global Health Office as a Program Assistant during my time living in Halifax. My work there focused mainly on the Advocates in Global Health Program (AGHP). The Global Health Office at Dalhousie University developed the AGHP with the aim to provide students with a holistic understanding of key issues in global health. This extra-curricular program is unique in its goal to promote interprofessional and student-faculty collaboration to allow learners to develop critical analysis of global health issues. The Advocates in Global Health Program is targeted to all students within the Faculties of Medicine, Health Professions, and Dentistry at Dalhousie University.
