The Office of Global Health
Mission of the Global Health Program
The mission for the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center El Paso (TTUHSC El Paso) Global Health Program is to promote awareness of global health issues by educating faculty, residents, students, and staff to address current and emerging health concerns affecting the El Paso community and communities abroad. Our priority is to help our students and faculty remain globally competitive while facilitating TTUHSC El Paso’s important role in the global health environment. The El Paso area is a tristate, binational community that is considered one of the largest growing cities; combined with neighboring Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, the area composes one of the largest metropolitan areas with over two million residents. The diversity in our area makes El Paso an ideal location to study the health sciences and offers many opportunities in the area of global health.
