Upstate Global Health Institute Funds

Community Clinic Partnership for Refugee & Immigrant Health Fund

This fund is dedicated to supporting local refugee outreach and health outcomes research through a Community-Clinic Partnership between Upstate Medical University Center for International Health and Catholic Charities of Onondaga County Refugee Resettlement Services. This Community-Clinic partnership connects leaders of healthcare systems and community agencies, implements initiatives to improve health outcomes, and facilitates outreach and health surveillance for local refugees and immigrants.

Your donation to this fund provides a way for our Community-Clinic Partnership to cover costs with funds not available to us from other campus and community sources. 

With a team of dedicated clinicians, scientists, project leaders and students, Upstate engages in cross-cutting activities. Funds will directly support the following activities: 

  • Community engagement, including vaccine clinics, health fairs, outreach events.
  • Quality improvement projects targeting health outcomes in the local refugee population and compensation to refugees willing to participate in surveys.
  • Menstrual and other hygiene products not easily accessed by local refugees

Upstate Global Health Education Fund

The Upstate Global Health Education fund is dedicated to supporting learners and trainees to participate in global health educational activities and research projects, by providing a mechanism for exchange of faculty scholars from Upstate Medical University to identified platforms and universities locally and globally. We provide a rich education platform for students and faculty from all Upstate colleges to participate in credit-bearing coursework, lab practicum projects, service-learning trips to disaster areas where we work, and robust training programs in clinical research. Through these efforts, the fund supports the University's mission of research, education and patient care.

Your donations to this fund provide a way for Upstate’s Institute for Global Health and Translational Science’s Center for Education and Training to fundraise to cover costs that are not available to us from other campus sources.
