McMaster explores Arctic health policy with new course collaboration

September 20, 2016

McMaster University is looking to address issues with mental health and access to health care in Canada’s Arctic through a new global health course created in collaboration with the University College of Southeast Norway. Titled Global Transitions in Local Communities, the course will be offered in January 2017 and will complement the MSc Global Health program that McMaster delivers through a network of partner universities from around the world. “Our Global Health program is opening up access to education in underserved communities, and in the process, increasing faculty and student mobility, and preparing future leaders to interrogate policies with a unique global health focus,” says Andrea Baumann, Associate V-P, Global Health and Director of McMaster's MSc Global Health program.
