This year the Club welcomes as it Global Scholar Jeremy O'Brien.  

MSc Global Health & Development. 

"Humanitarianism. A moral of kindness, benevolence, and sympathy extended to all human beings. This is a term I embrace as a lifestyle. We live in an evolving world, and while we have international “borders”, we are one human race. One human race. I’m pursuing a path to global citizenship, to aid people everywhere.

Inspired by the United Nations’s Millennium Development goals, and now the Sustainable Development Goals pictured above, I am dedicating my career towards ending extreme poverty and all its side effects. With so many people around the world who suffer from poverty, injustice, conflict, hunger, and disease, all I want from life is to know that I am working to make a positive impact in others’ lives.

Like the World Health Organization states, I believe every human being has the right to the highest attainable standard of health. This next year, I will be pursuing a Masters of Science in Global Health & Development at University College London. With the support of Rotary International, I am focusing in Disease Prevention & Treatment, and when my Masters program commences I will enter the humanitarian field as a professional ensuring every human is guaranteed their right to health."

The RI Global Scholar programme is of huge mutual benefit.
