2021 Global Health Research Showcase

The Global Health Research Showcase is our annual celebration of research led by Duke global health students. While the COVID-19 pandemic affected our plans to have an in-person event, many students were able to complete research projects despite the challenges of the pandemic. We are pleased to share their projects here.

Start your virtual journey by exploring these student projects, which represent a range of global health topics and methods. Be sure to continue exploring more projects below. View all projects
