Abstract

Published by the Dana Medical Library at the University of Vermont, this electronic exhibit explores the Global Health programs that have developed in affiliation with UVM departments and colleges. With input from enthusiastic physicians, nurses, professors and students, we gain an understanding of the broader Global Health mission as well as get a sense of the focus of each individual UVM program and initiative. From fighting Ebola in Liberia to curriculum supported international residencies in New Zealand, there is a movement toward international collaboration to promote public health and prevent disease. Health care professionals as well as educators strive to create pathways of communication that will improve, educate, and build in those parts of the world that need improved health care facilities as well as up to date information and technology. This is the gift that technology gives us: the ability to travel, communicate and improve lives on a global level.
