Yesterday's Voices in Global Health Poster Session was amazing! The event, sponsored by Duke Service-Learning, the Duke Health Humanities Lab, and CLAC, is part of an initiative from @dukeghi that helps Global Health students build cultural literacy through language labs.

In the video below, you can hear a striking number of languages being spoken in the room, and if you listen closely, you can hear Duke student Nicolas Andres Cort speaking in Chinese to explain a French research poster to a captivated audience. “This is probably one of the few moments at Duke where you have students presenting projects in Arabic, French, and Mandarin,
Big shout-out to the two #globalhealth @dukebassconnections poster winners at yesterday’s Bass Connections Showcase, an amazing annual event that highlights the best of interdisciplinary student research across @dukeuniversity! Team Low-Cost Laparoscopic Surgery with Tele-Mentoring took the People’s Choice Award and Team Big Data for Reproductive Health took the Judges’ Award. We couldn’t be more proud of these and ALL of our Bass Connections research teams and the impactful and transformative work they’re producing!

STUDENTS: Don't miss this opportunity to study health care designed for humans. As a student in this class, you’ll work through the process of human-centered design with the goal of developing a solution to a real-world, unmet need in healthcare.

On Tuesday evening, we held an alumni event in DC with a lightning talk by #DukeMScGH Beth Eanelli, reception and panel including Beth, #DGHI professor Nimmi Ramanujam, @intrahealthinternational CEO and DGHI board member Pape Gaye, and Wendy Taylor ’90, a fellow at the @rockefellerfdn. The panel, “Turning Innovation into Impact: How Can Technology and Innovation Bring About Greater Health Equity?,” was moderated by DGHI professor Krishna Udayakumar. Here, panelists share a light moment together. The event was a huge success—big thanks to 75+ of our alums and others for joining us!
#DukeMScGH student Chris Hayes has been preparing for this yearly event with his team for months … but he figured it couldn’t hurt to wear his lucky red shoes! All four teams did an amazing job presenting their policy solutions to increase availability and affordability of hypertension meds in Rwanda, Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda. Curious about Policy Idol? Check out the highlights on our Instagram story!
#DGHI researchers Bill Pan and Ernesto Ortiz recently wrapped up a productive week discussing their research on artisanal gold mining in Peru with key stakeholders. Here they are at a meeting in the Congress of the Republic of Peru with Congressman Wilbert Rozas, president of the Commission of Andean, Amazonian and Afro-Peruvian Peoples, Environment and Ecology. They also met with Dr. Luis Hildago, regional governor of Madre de Dios, and signed a new agreement with Instituto Nacional de Salud (INS), Peru's NIH equivalent.
