Ride for World Health Ushers in Global Health Day at OSU 

 

OSU Medical Center will celebrate Global Health Day on May 23rd to raise awareness about global health issues and domestic health concerns. To kick off OSU’s celebration of the event, the OSU Ride for World Health (RFWH) cycling team will arrive on the OSU Medical Center plaza at 8:30 a.m., a two-day stopover on the last leg of their 3,700 mile ride across the U.S. that will end in Washington, D.C. on May 29.

The group of 16 national and partial team riders comprising medical students, health care professionals and community representatives also participated in Global Health Day celebrations and Solidarity Rides in more than 37 cities from California through Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Arkansas, Tennessee and Kentucky before passing through Cincinnati, Ohio, on their way to Columbus.

During the day-long event at OSUMC, cyclists will be on hand to share experiences about their ride so far, which has included discussions along the way on healthcare issues ranging from poverty and disease to healthcare access and raising funds for MedWish International and AHOPE for Children. Other activities include presentations by nationally recognized leaders in global health, Sarah Broom from Village Health Works and Dr. Evan Lyon from Partners in Health, between 12:00 noon and 1:30 p.m.; and information about health care and global health issues at a global health fair.

For more information about Global Health Day at OSUMC, contact Eliza Beal.
