On May 14, the Duke Global Health Institute (DGHI) launched a new three-week One Health training program led by Greg Gray, a professor at DGHI, Duke’s Division of Infectious Diseases and the Nicholas School of the Environment. Charles Nunn, professor of evolutionary anthropology and global health—along with colleagues from Duke, NC State University and RTI International—was also involved with the program.

The goal of this graduate-level program is to support U.S. government institutions in their mission to build capacity among partners in developing countries to address the complex problems related to emerging infectious diseases.

“We were pleased with how well the program worked. We received strong support from Duke and other professionals in the Raleigh-Durham area,” said Gray. “We anticipate that next year we’ll have a larger class of sponsored international trainees as well as more Duke graduate students.”
