CGHSR is pleased to announce the launch of our new Scholars Program!
A woman is in labor and she and her baby are in distress; her midwife cannot manage the complications. The nearest neonatal and obstetric care facility is hours away. The transport across Lake Victoria to the mainland takes about an hour, if a boat is even available, then it could take another one to two hours to reach an obstetrician and an operating room, which also may not be available, in a county of one million residents.
CGHSR extends congratulations to Kelly Searle (School of Public Health), Keith Horvath (School of Public Health), and Jennifer Rickard (Medical School) who are the most recent recipients of the CGHSR Faculty Travel Awards. The next application deadline for CGHSR Faculty Travel Awards is February 1, 2019.
Applications are now being accepted for Fogarty Global Health Fellows for 12-month fellowships beginning in July 2019. These research fellowships are focused on critical, inter-related areas of health in low-income countries and provide outstanding opportunities for highly motivated doctoral students and postdocs to experience research training at top-ranked, NIH-funded research centers in locations including Thailand, India, Peru, Cameroon, Ghana, Kenya and Uganda. The applications are due Nov 15 by 5pm PST.
