accounts. As the voice of anesthesiologists in
the most populous state, repeatedly proven to be
the greatest contributor to the ASAPAC Day of
Contributing, the CSA is uniquely positioned to
complement the ASA Global Humanitarian Outreach
in service, advocacy, excellence, and generosity. CSA
members advocate for patients to have physicianled care, promote perioperative safety, support
anesthesia education and training, volunteer, and
engage in community work. This is Global Health.
Additionally, Global Health supports and is supported
by diversity in representation, equity in healthcare
access, environmental sustainability, and advocacy
for vulnerable populations. CSA members are already
active in these areas, but there are many more ways
to engage. Remote learning, one area accelerated by
global travel restrictions, is an endless opportunity
for members interested in teaching. Several
of California's academic programs host global
scholars. These scholar programs are often in want
of assistance with lodging, transportation, social
activities, or a simple invitation for their scholars
to attend religious services. Many programs also
look for anesthesiologists to join discussion
forums providing remote mentorship for colleagues
practicing in under-resourced settings. Teleeducation through webinars and video conferences
are creating global networks and bringing
international colleagues closer together than ever
before. Many of these same programs support our
own California physician colleagues practicing in
under-resourced rural settings. This, too, is Global
Health.

opportunities, providing resources, and facilitating
engagement. Philanthropy should be supported,
recognizing that it raises professional satisfaction.
Volunteerism should be promoted as a professional
distinction amongst state societies. Service for both
our local and global communities is Global Health.
A Global Health committee could make the CSA a
recognized leader in addressing the many barriers
preventing health. For our patients, there are many
ways to improve physical, mental, and social wellbeing, but the professional purpose gained by CSA
members engaged in Global Health might also
serve to improve the wellness of our providers.
Anesthesiologists need not fly to the other side of
the planet to take care of disadvantaged patients
when we can affect equity, safety, and access right
here in California. We invite CSA members to get
involved, maintaining that Global Health is for all.

Putting a spotlight on CSA members' Global Health
work not only increases the value and recognition
for our society, it also highlights opportunities for
engagement for all CSA members. A Global Health
committee would serve members by identifying
