Come learn about the multitude of global health elective opportunities available through Baystate REACH. Join us as we kick off our 10th year of preparing resident physicians and students to serve low resource communities throughout the world. 

Our first meeting of the year will feature faculty from a variety of disciplines discussing their global health projects in countries such as, Haiti, India, the Navajo Nation, Ecuador, and Honduras. Additionally, we will speak about factors to consider when choosing a global health elective, and the preparations required for an elective abroad.
