#DukeMScGH student Kevin Ramseur II is in Geneva this summer as a @WHO intern through the Duke Program on Global Policy and Governance, led by #DGHI professor Gavin Yamey. It’s only been a week, but Kevin is embarking on some new adventures and challenges … like learning a new language: “Soon after arriving, I realized that the extent of my French knowledge was Level 1 of Duolingo and the chorus to ‘Lady Marmalade.’ I have continued to practice and learn as I go, but I underestimated the difficulty of communicating with the people here, as well as my ability to pick-up on a new language,

So proud of Duke University global health graduate Lily Zerihun '16, who's been admitted to 11 medical schools. “I want to work in some service capacity,” she said. “Being able to directly impact communities in the U.S. and around the world that don’t have access to health care – I want to be someone who makes a difference in that.” Best wishes to Lily at Columbia University! http://bit.ly/2r9gfkn


In a new commentary in Lancet Global Health, DGHI professor Gavin Yamey and many others call for consolidating and enhancing donor support for new initiatives to develop vaccines, therapeutics, and diagnostics to prevent potential outbreaks from becoming humanitarian crises. This, they say, would be an efficient way to channel resources aimed at improving global outbreak preparedness and response: http://bit.ly/2qZVOXb
