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.
Following the April 8, 2019 deadline, CGHSR awarded the following Faculty Travel Awards:
In February, the Center for Global Health and Social Responsibility organized two back-to-back trainings for the United Nations Agency for Migration (IOM) – first in Nairobi, Kenya and then in Kampala, Uganda.
In December, the Center for Global Health and Social Responsibility organized two trainings for United Nations Agency for Migration (IOM) clinicians in Kampala, Uganda and Amman, Jordan. These trainings - led by trainers from the University of Minnesota and its partners - occurred within the framework of a partnership between the University of Minnesota and IOM to help build the agency’s capacity to conduct health assessments and ensure the safe travel of US-bound refugees.
