In the face of natural disasters, famine, disease and political unrest, communities around the world are challenged to provide access to basic medical and public health services. At the Center for Global Health, we are committed to tackling these challenges by training future generations of global health professionals and physicians at home and abroad - leaders who understand the complexities and can solve the problems facing our global environment.
This mission would not be possible were it not for the model and leadership of Dr. Calvin L. Wilson. Dr. Wilson, a physician whose career spans countries and cultures, has served as center director since 2004. After taking the helm, Dr. Wilson expanded the center’s ability to train physicians overseas; mentor students at home; and develop relationships in support of a shared global mission. As a result individuals and communities around the world now have improved access to health care and trained health providers.
In recognition for Dr. Wilson’s passion as a global health physician and his contributions as center director, we are pleased to announce that the Center for Global Health will establish the Calvin L. Wilson Scholarship for Future Leaders in Global Health.
Dr. Wilson serves as a model for what can be accomplished when a single person dedicates his career toward the service, healing and training of others. We invite you to join the center in making your own contribution to advancement of careers in global health with a donation to the Wilson scholarship fund. Our goal is to raise $50,000 in order to endow the new scholarship and secure the future of global health training at the University of Colorado.
