On June 17, Rutgers Giving Day, we came together as a community to support Rutgers students and faculty in confronting urgent global health problems.
“Masks?” and “Mental Health” are the first two videos in a COVID-19 educational series being produced by the Rutgers Global Health Institute Student Council. Leading the project—and combining her passions, medicine and the arts—is committee co-chair Laura Palm, a medical school graduate and current doctoral student at Mason Gross School of the Arts.
On Rutgers Giving Day, supporters can help Rutgers Global Health Institute respond to global health threats, locally and around the world. The first $4,200 raised will be matched.
The experience of spending two weeks in Tanzania as part of a global health educational program opened nine Rutgers students to the realities of medicine in a low-income country. A portion of the donations to Rutgers Global Health Institute during last year’s Rutgers Giving Day helped support this year’s program.
