Why engage in global health?

Today Dr. Jane Philpott shared her views on physician engagement in global health to our medical school. She started the talk with a question, “why do you wish to engage in global health?” What a murky area to tread into, in my opinion. Funnily enough I started my recent CMA leadership talk on global health ethics the same way. Responses in both situations were somewhat limited, guarded. I’d like to openly address my reasons for engaging in global health. My mind is also murky in terms of intentions, and I’d like to put that right out into open cyberspace. Tomorrow, that is.
