About the Center
Located on the first floor in Suite 165 of Prior Hall (Health Sciences Library)
The Health Sciences Center for Global Health (HSCGH) at The Ohio State University (OSU) is a collaboration among the OSU Colleges of Dentistry, Medicine, Nursing, Optometry, Pharmacy, Public Health, Veterinary Medicine and the School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences. The HSCGH is led jointly by the Colleges of Medicine and Public Health.
The HSCGH is funded in part by the Fogarty International Center of the National Institutes of Health. The framework grant, which targets developing countries, allows the center to create even greater opportunities for OSU students in both research and education.
Approved by the Board of Trustees in July 2007, the HSCGH works to increase student interest in global careers, prepare students for those careers and to promote, develop and coordinate interdisciplinary global health education and research throughout the health sciences colleges and the larger community.
