What’s New in Global Health?

To those who have not heard yet, this year marks the first year that we offer both a major and a minor in Global Health at Hope College! In the month of September we had the chance to host another Interdisciplinary Learning Community event to all of our Global Health faculty. We were joined by Kearsley Stewart from Duke’s Global Health Institute and their Health Humanities Lab. The focus was on “Embracing Our Interdisciplinary Foundation” in research, practice, and pedagogy.  

Kearsley A. Stewart, Ph.D., is Professor of the Practice at Duke University with joint appointments in Global Health and Cultural Anthropology.  She is also a faculty associate with the Trent Center for Bioethics, Humanities and History of Medicine and the Duke Science & Society program, and is Co-Director of the Duke Health Humanities Lab.  Stewart’s current research interests include community-engaged sickle cell disease research in Africa, global health pedagogy, and global health humanities.  Her work is published in The Lancet, Academic Medicine, Journal of Bioethical Inquiry, AMA Journal of Ethics, Global Public Health, Critical Stages, Africa Today, and Asian Bioethics Review among other journals.

It was an absolute honor to have the opportunity to welcome Kiersley Stewart to speak to our faculty. 

But what’s to come in October? 

On October 13th from 4:30-6:30pm we will be hosting our first advising session of the year. It will be located at Haworth Hotel in conference room 104. We look forward to connecting with our students. Come enjoy some appetizers and beverages, a speaker talking about Mental Health, meet our Global Health faculty and more!
