With a new school year now well underway, the Global Health Office has been busy with its various programs and events. Many new faces have joined our team over the past few months, and it is time to introduce the office staff and the programs they manage.
Said Msabaha is the program manager of the international education experiences offered through the Global Health Office. These include course electives, internships, clinical placements, and research placements for students in the faculties of Medicine, Health and Dentistry at Dalhousie. The Global Health Office has a comprehensive list of strong partner institutions, which seeks to offer students with a unique opportunity to experience first-hand how the social determinants of health play a key role in patient health particularly in under-served or resource-constrained populations. Said is also acting director of the office until January 2019, while Shawna O’Hearn pursues her PhD in Ontario.
Hala Nader is the program assistant for International Education. Hala is in her first year of the Master of Public Administration program at Dalhousie.
