Massachusetts Medical Society: Committee on Global Health

Committee on Global Health

Provides a benefit to the members of the Massachusetts Medical Society and the citizens of the Commonwealth by expanding the understanding of global health issues, while at the same time promoting the active participation of members in a variety of global health-related projects. The committee also serves as an information and service resource for those interested in global health. This committee meets 5 times a year from 6:00-8:00 pm.
