The Global Health Learning Collaborative (GHLC) is a discussion-based seminar that will provide an introduction to global health’s key concepts and principles.  Participants will explore best practices and structural violence as they relate to health care. Discussions will include a critical analysis of non-governmental organizations, social, political and economic issues that affect health outcomes, varying models of health care delivery, and more. Highlighting inter-professional collaboration, the GHLC will include members from the Des Moines University community, Methodist and Mercy Residency Programs and the Heartland Global Health Consortium partner schools.  Participants in the GHLC will broaden their scope of global health and will be empowered to be effective global citizens.
