Listen to this year's GHRI Student Committee and Faculty members discuss how they became interested in global health, and activities planned for the year!



The Global Health Rehabilitation Initiative (GHRI) is a student led initiative supervised by the GHRI committee and faculty co-leads.

The GHRI provides unique opportunities for students to be involved at many levels and in various capacities; from attending meetings with faculty members, active involvement in the GHRI committee, and the different student groups. 

It is an opportunity to share knowledge and exchange perspectives on global health in rehabilitation, work on train the trainer initiatives, and learn about experiences in fieldwork (OT) and clinical (PT) placements on the intersectionality of global health, rehabilitation and disability. .
