The purpose of the Global Health in the News assignment is to encourage students to understand what’s going on right now in global health and how this affects us in the United States. The field of global health is constantly changing and evolving, so it’s only by being aware of what’s happening in the news that you can be up-to-date with what’s happening in the field. You must choose a global health news article published in a high quality source in the past four months. High quality sources include newspapers (e.g. New York Times, Washington Post) and news magazines (e.g. Time, the Economist). Please do not use a transcript of a television or radio news report and make sure you’re article covers a global health concern. Articles that only talk about the U.S. or aren’t about health are not acceptable.
