Hi everyone! I am Marine, I have been coordinating the Global Health Education in Schools (GHEiS) project for the past year and will be continuing in this role this upcoming year. My background is in health policy: I just finished my postgrad studies at the LSE in London. I am now working for the NHS as part of the graduate management scheme.

I am really happy to announce that a couple GHEiS modules are being finalised and that we are planning for the pilot phase to be conducted this year starting January 2022. To take part in the pilot, all you need is a couple students who are keen to go into secondary schools a few times to talk about global health issues. You will be provided with all the necessary resources and guidance, and will receive training beforehand. It’s a great opportunity to develop your teaching skills, learn more about global health and make an impact!

Looking forward to hearing from you soon!
