CGPH Affiliated Faculty and Staff

The Center for Global Public Health (CGPH) provides transdisciplinary, experiential research, training, and learning opportunities for students and faculty to improve human health worldwide. We focus on the most vulnerable populations and communities with the greatest health inequities. Our goal is to be a platform to translate global health research into solutions for public health action at Berkeley and beyond. Meet our team members that make this possible.
