An image representing global healthWelcome to the home page for Global Initiative: Global Health.

This is the fourth in our yearly cycle of events around a common theme. In the past, we've done GI on Latin America, Sustainability and Asia.

This year we want to address many of the critical issues, ideas, problems and challenges in health care.

Here's our mission statement: A yearlong educational program that examines issues involving health, well-being, and health care from our local community through the challenges faced by the nation and world.

Global Initiative: Global Health will run on the calendar year beginning in the spring 2012 semester in mid-January, and finishing at the end of fall semester in December 2012. Make sure you check out our link to upcoming events.

We want to stress how Global Initiative is a true partnership between our college community and the greater Hudson Valley. We welcome anyone to our campuses in Middletown and Newburgh to attend our events, or, if you have some relevant theme, please propose an event for us.

Most of all, come with an open mind and let SUNY Orange help provide clarity on issues involving Global Health, or, at least raise provocative questions that will help us better understand these complex issues and find solutions to them.
