Global Health Education Director

Catherine Dominic

Hello everyone!

I’m Cathy and will be working as your 2020/21 SfGH Global Health Education Director! I have completed my third year of medicine at Barts and am intercalating in the Control of Infectious Diseases at LSHTM. I got involved with SfGH after being part of a NWG creating a toolkit on domestic violence and abuse. Following that I joined the national committee as Secretary and now am back as GHED – I think the work of SfGH is key in inspiring and empowering future global health leaders. 

I am particularly excited to launch our new Global Health Education in Schools programme this coming year to get school students enthused about various issues in global health, as well as continuing to work with ACMA as part of our newly formed Race and Health National Working Group to ensure that trying to tackle racial inequality in health is part of SfGH’s work.
