Office of International Activities publishes 10-year report, finds new home

UNC School of Medicine's Office of International Activities will now be housed in the Institute for Global Health and Infectious Diseases (IGHID). The Office will also now be called the Office of Global Health Education.

In an announcement of the move, Office of Global Health Education Director, Martha Carlough, MD, MPH, said: 

"What we do and who we serve will not change. Our office will remain in 1066 Bondurant so we are easily available to medical students and residents. Our leadership team remains including myself, Sylvia Becker-Dreps and Justin Myers (Associate Directors), Camila Restrepo Chavez (Coordinator), and Shay Slifko, who is now our Assistant Director!

This decision has resounding support of SOM leadership and will only enhance global health opportunities. We will continue to support UNC-Chapel Hill in aspiring to be the leading global public health institution in the world."

The Office has also released a new report chronicling 10 years of leadership in global health education. Read the report here.
