Who We Are

Cornell Health International (CHI) is a student organization at Cornell University that works to raise awareness of global health issues at Cornell University and to provide members the opportunity to develop student-led service projects in international health. Our adviser is Prof. David Pelletier, who leads research in Nutrition policy in developing and developed nations. The organization was founded in Spring 2006 by Julia Tian ’08 and Alisa Mo ’08.
