May 2022 Newsletter

During this month of graduation and new beginnings, we celebrate our team members who have graduated from several graduate programs at Washington University in St. Louis. We will miss those who are moving on to new opportunities and are grateful for their invaluable contributions to ICHAD and the children and families we work to support. We are also excited to welcome new staff members who have joined ICHAD in our Uganda and U.S. offices.

We have been welcoming our new CHILD-GRFLEAD, and RRT trainees as well as our first cohort of trainees in our new training program, ACHIEVE. Our trainees are joining virtually and in-person from several states in the U.S. as well as Ghana, Kenya, Sierra Leone, South Africa, and Uganda. We are looking forward to our first summer of research training that will include in-person gathering and learning among our four programs!

We’re also making final preparations for the upcoming Forum on Child and Adolescent Global Health Research and Capacity Building, an in-person gathering of trainees, faculty mentors, stakeholders, and staff, in Uganda in June 20-30, 2022. We look forward to seeing many partners in Uganda!
