"At the Global Health Corps, we recruit, connect and train ... the global health leaders of the future," Barbara Bush and Dave Ryan, co-founder and founding director of the Global Health Corps, respectively, write in a Devex guest commentary. "The complexity and scope of today's challenges require people with diverse skill sets from a range of fields," they continue, adding, "The global health leader of the future will, however, be an innovator, a mobilizer, and a servant -- committed to partnership and learning by reaching across borders and sectors." They conclude, "We believe we've seen 216 of the global health leaders of the future in the Global Health Corps in the past four years. We know more are needed. We are confident that we will see 110 more this year. We encourage you to join the movement" (1/30).
