Greetings to my Global Health Colleagues,


I hope you all had a wonderful fall quarter, holiday season and New Year. As we begin the new calendar year, and almost my fifth year, I’d like to provide you with some updates from the Center for Innovation in Global Health (CIGH) via this newsletter.

Education Updates

Beginning Wednesday, January 08, 2014, I will be co-moderating the Sanela Diana Jenkins International Human Rights Speaker Series: Health and Human Rights (LAW 723) with human rights scholar and Stanford Freeman Spogli Institute Fellow Helen Stacy. It will run on Wednesdays from 5:30-7:00pm, and is open to the public. You can read more about the course here.

Now in the fourth year of collaboration with the University of Colorado, the $10 million NIH-MEPI grant is an attempt to strengthen medical capacity in Zimbabwe’s primary medical school.
