University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing
Global Health and the Girl Child
CAG and The Agnes Irwin School have forged a teaching partnership with the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing Science, thanks to the tireless work of our newest CAG Advisory Board member, Dr. Loretta Sweet Jemmott.
Fall 2013 marked the first semester of Global Health and the Girl Child – co-taught by U. Penn faculty and Agnes Irwin teacher, Dr. Sarah Anne Eckert. The course discusses specific health issues that girls and women face around the world everyday. We look forward to the future as we begin to see this special partnership afford our girls to have an ivy-league educational experience in their own high school classroom.
