BWH's New Global Health Blog
Many members of the BWH community are committed to global health, whether through research, patient care or teaching. Some do this as part of their role at BWH, and others serve on a volunteer basis through BWH-led organizations and other groups and missions. A new blog, called BWH Global Health Hub, is a place for BWHers to share their global health experiences and foster collaborations with others involved in similar work. If you would like to contribute to the blog while on a global health mission-whether you're there for a week or a year-please email email@example.com.
