ABOUT TWiGH

This Week in Global Health (TWiGH ) is a weekly global health show where Dr. Martin and a team of qualified global health experts and SYPs (Students and Young Professionals) give a brief overview of current events and topics in the global health news space. Our panel represents the many disciplines within Global Health, and within each episode, we cover interesting topics or organizations in global health. Every week, we aim to provide more in-depth perspective on a subject, bringing in experts and highlighting different aspects of the topic, and creating a round-table environment for discussion within the panel and facilitating interaction with our online audience.


THE TWiGH TEAM

Our Regular Panelists

Along with established global health expert Dr. Greg Martin, TWiGH's panel is comprised of professionals that represent the future and emerging direction of global health.  In keeping with the multi-disciplinary nature of the global health sector, our regular panelists come from a variety of educational backgrounds (MD, PhD, MSc, MPH, MBA, etc) and specializations (clinical medicine, science, education, nutrition, communications, and more). They also come from diverse geographic backgrounds and report weekly from their locations around the world. However, they all have one thing in common - a passion for everything global health.  Each week, our panelists come together to present the latest updates and research in this space and to provide an informed and interactive commentary for the current and emerging global health community.
