The Journal of Global Health

The Journal of Global Health The Journal of Global Health (JGH) is an international public health publication and media organization based at Columbia University. We are committed to featuring original student research in public health and spotlighting public health activism.
(35)

With subscribers and authors representing 70+ institutions in 15+ countries spanning 5 continents, JGH provides a forum for students to spark productive exchange. Student public health activists and researchers worldwide have great potential to build a cohesive and dynamic community. JGH's WiGH? podcast, GlobalThink Forum, and biannual print publication aim to give them the voice to do so. Moving forward, we see JGH becoming an indispensable medium that features the work of student researchers and activists from across the globe, each examining public health problems in his or her community. We hope to harness the untapped power of these students, build upon each other's contributions, and synergize solutions that are local in approach but redefine global in impact.

For our final event for our JGH Speaker Series at Columbia University, BCB Director Nathan Lam invited Dr. James Colgrove for a conversation on the effect of political polarization on attitudes towards vaccination. Because public health mandates are greatly uncentralized, he reminded us that as future physicians, researchers, and policy-makers, we have a very unique role in shaping scientific attitudes in our own communities.
