Global Health Brain
The Brain Project is based on BrainTechnology, a mindmapping software that gathers and organizes information by linking concepts to one another; one such map of links is called a “brain.”
In preparation for this year’s 20th Annual International Roundtable - Global Health: Promoting Equity Within and Across Borders, the Institute for Global Citizenship will use the Brain Project to map out Macalester’s footprint on global health. The Global Health Brain helps visualize the different areas of global health that the Macalester community is involved with from a wide array of disciplines. The Global Health Brain helps link student, staff, faculty and alumni with other members of the Macalester community that are working on similar global health related topics, from student honors theses linked with faculty research publications to students internship sites with alumni vocations.
Are you planning on attending this year’s International Roundtable? The Global Health Brain will help you bridge the gap between your own global health related research/activity interests and that of other Macalester members. You are now able to reach out to those with similar interest in global health outside of your particular discipline to have a more wholesome approach to understanding global health.
