The Global Health Initiatives Forum series brings students and faculty from UMMS and other health-related schools together to share, discuss and foster international collaborations in various regions of the world. The series continues in March with an event focused on student projects overseas with collaborators in Africa, India and Sri Lanka. Brent Williams, Professor of Internal Medicine and Dierctor of the Global Health & Disparities (GHD) Path of Excellence, will provide a GHD program overview, followed by presentations from the following students:

Sarah Bell: Barriers to emergency obstetric care in low-income countries (Zambia)

Matt Tafoya: Sustainable resuscitation ultrasound education in a low-resource environment: the Kumasi experience (Ghana)

Chelsea Tafoya: Ultrasound-guided resuscitation of critically ill medical patients presenting to the emergency department in a low-resource setting (Ghana)

Vik Jayadeva: Assessing the mental health of the Hijra women of Mandya (India)

Rashmi Patil: Attacking the diabetic conundrum of Sri Lanka: an integrated clinical approach (Sri Lanka)

All faculty and students with a passion for global health are invited to join us. With plenty of time for questions, group discussion, and individual conversations, we anticipate a lively exchange of ideas. A light dinner will be provided.
