Building a Global Community for Health Equity

The Office of Global Health works to build nursing capacity, strengthen health systems, and improve global health by supporting the UMSON community and our international collaborators as they conduct education, research, and practice.

We strive to build partnerships and create programs that improve population health outcomes and address the professional development and capacity of health care workers. The shared vision of all of our partnerships is to strengthen the visibility, recognition, and value of nurses as leaders.
