Earlier today, DGHI deputy director Randy Kramer welcomed Ben Fawcett, a senior at the North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics, to DGHI to discuss global health and malaria. Ben is part of a group of students at NCSSM interested in science communications. Each year, students in the group interview a Duke scientist in a field they’re interested in pursuing and then publish a post on the Duke Research blog about what they learned.
Last month, more than 150 people from Duke and beyond gathered for DGHI's Global Health Showcase, an annual event where Duke global health students of all levels exhibit their research projects. The DGHI communications team caught up with a few of the attendees, who shared reflections on their work and the value of engaging in field research. Watch the video to hear what they had to say!
