Next week I am traveling to Nicaragua with UNC School of Medicine faculty member Doug Morgan, MD. Professor Morgan is a gastroenterologist, and has long done research in collaboration with partners in Nicaragua and Honduras. We are visiting several sites, including the University of Nicaragua, Leon, and its Center for Epidemiology and Health, under the direction of Dean Rodolfo Pena.
We will be joined on this trip by our colleagues Dr. Pia MacDonald from the UNC School of Public Health and Dr. Nathan Thielman of Duke University. Our Global Health partnerships are substantial and growing even more so.
More updates next week.
