Led by climate and health pioneer Jonathan Patz, the Global Health Institute at the University of Wisconsin-Madison champions practical solutions for well-being today and tomorrow.
- Advancing healthy, sustainable urban transportation with the Health-Oriented Transportation initiative
- Bringing an army of students to work on Wisconsin city priorities with the UniverCity Alliance, co-founded by GHI
