Creating Sustainable Health and Humanitarian
Solutions Across the Globe
Every day across the globe, dynamic interactions among
social science, physical science, and humanitarian efforts
affect the health and well-being of individuals and regional
communities. By improving the success of these
interactions, the Global Health and Humanitarian Opportunity
program aims to create significant gains in global health
that enable long-term societal progress and sustainability.
This program is designed to create and support ventures
with diverse funding opportunities by operating through a
public-private, multidisciplinary “incubator” based
structure that promotes diverse, interdisciplinary
interactions and partnerships between individuals and
groups from the university, public, and corporate sectors.
goal for the Medical Evaluation and Diagnostic System for
Infants, Newborns, and Children (MEDSINC)
is to provide a non-invasive point-of-care clinical
assessment and diagnostic system, implemented through
community healthcare workers, to globally expand
pediatric-specific healthcare to children in resource poor
countries and reduce under-5 mortality, morbidity, and
burden of disease.
Want to get involved? We encourage you to reach out to us
if you are interested in participating in an ongoing
program project, expanding an existing project, or in
developing a new global health/humanitarian venture that
is in line with the program’s mission.
