Global Health Leaders Start Here

To celebrate the 10th Anniversary of DGHI’s Master of Science in Global Health program, we’re featuring several alumni and current students on Instagram. Today’s feature is Dorothy Mangale (MSc-GH ’15) who is currently coordinating implementation of a prospective cohort study being conducted across nine sites in six countries (Kenya, Uganda, Malawi, Bangladesh, Burkina Faso and Pakistan). The study aims to dial down on the causes of death, poor nutritional recovery and risk of de-admission among acutely ill, malnourished children in low- and middle-income countries. This fall, Dorothy is beginning a PhD program in implementation science in the Department of Global Health at the University of Washington. In this photo, Dorothy, second from the left in the bottom row, is pictured with her team after training. To read more about Dorothy and other MSc-GH grads and students, check out the 10th Anniversary feature linked in our bio!

They voted and so should you! DGHI professor Megan Huchko gave her global reproductive health students extra credit for voting early on campus or through absentee ballots. The evidence? Voting selfies! Today, one week out from U.S. Election Day, we urge you to share your voice by VOTING! #DGHIvotes #DukeVotes #Vote #DukeStudents

Earlier this month, in collaboration with the Guatemala Ministry of Health, pediatric surgeon and #DGHI prof Henry Rice led a patient safety symposium focused on reducing medical errors and improving healthcare quality across the Guatemala National Health System. At the event, 41 hospital directors from across the country worked to identify national patient safety problems and propose strategic improvement initiatives. Rice was joined by Duke pediatric anesthesiology quality director and DGHI affiliate Brad Taicher, Joe Doty from the Duke School of Medicine and MS student Isabelle Sico, who completed her master’s fieldwork on this topic earlier this year. The event was coordinated by the Guatemala Ministry of Health, @dukeuniversity, @fundegua and the University of San Carlos. This symposium builds on Rice’s extensive research in patient safety and was part of a broad collaborative patient safety initiative in Guatemala, where Rice has been working for many years. #DGHI #GlobalHealth #PatientSafety
This week, former Prime Minister of #Kenya Raila Odinga visited @dukeuniversity, and one of his stops was #DGHI professor Kate Whetten’s #globalhealth ethics class. What an honor—an incredible opportunity for our students to talk with him in such an intimate setting! @dukechpir @dukesanford
Yesterday #DGHI gathered by the virtual “fire” for a lively panel discussion about what #AlmaAta40 means for #globalhealth and #humanrights—featuring Osondu Ogbuoji from @dukecpigh, Joy Noel Baumgartner from #DGHI’s Evidence Lab and @benjaminmasonmeier of @uncpublichealth. Highlights include: “we need to talk to each other, not split into different camps and struggle for the same pie of money” and “will the #AstanaDeclaration adequately address national sovereignty—a threat to human rights?” Visit DGHI on YouTube to watch the panel or look for the story on our website in the next week or so!
