Global Health Center

Overview

In an increasingly interconnected world, the mission of the Albert Einstein College of Medicine Global Health Center is to promote the ideal of health for all. Our goals and objectives encompass the domains of education, research, and service, which intersect and overlap in all of our actions. The Global Health Center serves as a central coordinating structure for all of Einstein's global health activities, through which they can be integrated to bring out their synergies, with the ultimate goal of reducing disparities in health and alleviating human suffering.
