Nice article from Duke Chronicle about a recent Duke Health Humanities Lab event that explored the intersection between health, humanities and delved into race and immigration issues. One of two guest speakers, Duke Surgery's Oluwadamilola Fayanju said her humanities background helps her "explain medical stuff in a way that my patients understand." http://bit.ly/2sDgw0G
DGHI's Evidence Lab is working with Julius and others at LifeNet International to evaluate the impact of their maternal and child health intervention. Evidence Lab staff echo LifeNet's sentiments about him: "Julius is amazing!" and "We absolutely love working with Julius!" they said. Best wishes to Julius in his program at the University of Manchester--sounds like he's a rising star!
