A student research team from Makerere University and the University of Minnesota has reached an important milestone for any research group—they recently published findings from their study launched in 2016. The team, led by Edwin Nuwagira, Anna Stadelman, and Joseph Baluku with contributions from Mathias Lubega, published "Obstructive lung disease and quality of life after cure of multi-drug-resistant tuberculosis in Uganda: a cross-sectional study" in the May 2020 edition of the journal Tropical Medicine and Health.

The University of Minnesota's Global Health Student Advisory Board (GHSAB) is an interprofessional global health student group. This committee of student representatives from graduate and professional programs across the Health Sciences works to educate and mobilize the next generation of socially responsible global health professionals.

During the past academic year, GHSAB has cultivated a global health mindset at the University of Minnesota under the leadership of Caroline Sell (School of Public Health & Law School) and Julianne Tieu (College of Pharmacy). The board’s accomplishments include adding 12 new members, attending 6 board meetings, hosting 4 lunch events, and executing two successful electronic campaigns for World Water Day and World Health Day. The Center would like to express our gratitude to this year’s board and to Caroline and Julianne for their guidance and achievements.

While applications for the board every year do not open until Fall semester, new leadership is chosen at the end of Spring semester. This year, the board has elected Jesse Abelson (Medical School) and Paige Palomaki (College of Veterinary Medicine) to lead the 2020-2021 student board.
