Leading Voices in Global Health
Read the expressions of selfless service in the thoughts, reflections, poetry, and artistry by former Global Health Corps fellows published in Anchor.
We have had the honor of collaborating with Global Health Corps to train and support young leaders pursuing global health careers since the first cohort of fellows came together in 2009. Now, with more than 400 alumni of the program, we are more awed than ever by the power of community, connection, and formation in raising diverse global voices about the need for social justice in our world.
We make particular note of four Global Health Corps alumni that have contributed to Issue 01 and Issue 02 of Anchor Magazine. We celebrate the deep reflective awareness in the voices and visions of these global health leaders. We see the real work of social change in the words and images here as well as in the lives of those who created them.
Still Harbor’s “A Life of Service” curriculum challenges Global Health Corps fellows to reflect upon how their call to social justice service is personal and professional. In engaging deep questions of identity, belief, values, and relationship, fellows learn a praxis of social justice that is both inward and outward looking. Time and time again, we accompany people through this process and watch them discover the power and joy of what spiritual teachers like us often call selfless service.
Unlocking the potential of selfless service—action that is aware of and connected to self, other, and something greater—is at the core of Still Harbor’s vision. We encourage you to experience the expression of selfless service in the following thoughts, reflections, poetry, and artistry published in Anchor by these global health leaders:
