Our new scholar Arush Lal, sponsored by Atlanta RC, with President John Armstrong at the 2018 London District Conference in Bournemouth on 19th October.
Arush has strong experience in global health policy, with a focus on health technology and innovation, new education and training models, global health security, and health systems strengthening. He most recently completed a Global Health Corps fellowship with IntraHealth International/Frontline Health Workers Coalition in Washington, DC focusing on access to primary health care and universal health coverage.
Arush graduated from Georgia Tech as a Stamps President’s Scholar and has since worked closely with U.S. government officials and Congress, foreign ministries, multilateral organizations, civil society, and the private sector across several countries. A vocal advocate for youth in global health, Arush has been selected as a PHC Young Leader, Emerging Voices for Global Health Fellow, and Gates Foundation Goalkeeper. He has also spoken at the 71st World Health Assembly, the Consortium for Universities in Global Health, and the UN Youth Dialogue.
He is currently pursuing an MSc in Health Policy, Planning, and Financing at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine and the London School of Economics as a Rotary Global Scholar.
We wish Arush well in his studies and look forward to his visits to our Club
