1 min read

Ankush Sharma, a graduate student in the Health Careers Program at Harvard University, attended the inaugural Clinton Global Initiative University (CGI U) conference at Tulane University March 14-16. Sharma is the first student from his program to attend CGI U, which consists of college students selected from across the country who come together to tackle global problems with innovative solutions. As part of the William J. Clinton Foundation, CGI brings together world leaders, nongovernmental organizations, and the private sector to convert good intentions into meaningful action and tangible results.

Sharma says that he has begun working toward his “commitment to action” by founding the not-for-profit organization Global HEED, which works with students at Emory and Princeton universities.
