Philanthropic gifts from four families totaling $7 million will accelerate the growth of Dartmouth’s Center for Global Health Equity (CGHE) by bringing together thriving international and domestic health equity programs at the Geisel School of Medicine and Dartmouth’s Dickey Center for International Understanding. Since 2013, the CGHE has prepared Geisel students to become leaders in health equity, built robust reciprocal relationships with international partners, and drawn together faculty and staff from across Dartmouth to advance health equity among diverse communities worldwide. These donations will expand student opportunities to participate in global health equity projects in locations such as Greenland, Tanzania, and Kosovo.
