Hello hello,

I’m Ryan and will be working as your 2020/21 SfGH Communications Director! I got involved with SfGH after completing an inspiring training for new trainers (TNT) weekend in Edinburgh last year and my global health journey has not stopped since then! I’m particularly excited about heading the comms for the 25th year of SfGH and working towards the goals outlined in the 2019-2020 strategic plan. Specifically, I look forward to diversifying the SfGH student network, restructuring our website and hopefully producing a podcast series. I look forward to working with and meeting you all!
