International Program Development / Global Health Studies invites you to attend the 7th Annual Global Health Resource Fair for Volunteer Opportunities at Northwestern University.

The Resource Fair has been very successful in engaging Northwestern students to serve local nonprofit organizations. In the past, we have had dozens of organizations represented and hundreds of students participate in the event. These organizations recruit students for service and volunteer positions and the exchange has led to the mutual benefit of linking students, organizations, and most importantly, the clients and populations they aim to serve.

Don't miss this opportunity to learn about the global health volunteer and internship activities with leading health serving non-profits NGOs, student groups, and other great organizations in Chicago!
