Liberian YALI Fellow Returns to Campus

The Dickey Center welcomes back to campus Patrice Juah, a recent Liberian Fellow in President Obama's Young African Leaders Initiative (YALI). She will be speaking at a student-only event sponsored by the Dickey Center's student health organization, the Dartmouth Coalition for Global Health, about the Ebola crisis and the anti-stigma campaign she and the Arterial Network, a Pan-African network of artists, activists, and others, recently launched called "Ebola Is Not My Identity."

Juah has a busy schedule this week. She will be meeting with many Dartmouth YALI program partners and with Dartmouth's Emergency Planning Group, which is outlining policies and actions for addressing a response to potential Ebola threats on campus. Juah has been away from Liberia for 26 days and has cleared the monitoring period. In addition, she's being interviewed by the Standpoints student global health magazine and meeting with various faculty.

A New Global Health Partnership in Vietnam

The Dickey Center’s Global Health Initiative has been actively developing a rich portfolio of partnerships with the twin aims of expanding student engagement and research collaboration. This summer GHI Program Manager, Jessica Friedman, journeyed to Hanoi, Vietnam to meet partners at Population Health and Development (PHAD) to conduct a site assessment and experience first-hand the impact of the research studies three students had been working on that summer.

PHAD has been a research collaborator with Dartmouth-Hitchcock’s Joseph Rosen, MD and UCLA’s Peter Katona, MD working on a mobile disease surveillance system. The system has been designed to report live epidemiological data of specific infectious diseases, as collected by commune health centers, through a text messaging system. Based on Dartmouth’s ongoing collaborative work with PHAD, program managers at both institutions quickly identified two studies for students work on over the summer of 2014: the mMOM project on child maternal health and a mental health project.
