Summer Greetings from the ICHAD and SMART Africa Teams!
In June, ICHAD hosted the ten-day Forum on Child and Adolescent Global Health Research and Capacity Building in Uganda. The Forum brought together ICHAD team members, community leaders, trainees, mentors, partners, research experts, honored keynote speakers, and guests from the US, Uganda, and across Sub-Saharan Africa, to gain skills, network, and look to the future of child and adolescent global health and mental health research. We officially launched the ACHIEVE NIH-funded research training program, as well as four new NIH-funded research studies. We are also celebrating new faculty appointments of two of our team members, Dr. Proscovia Nabunya and Dr. Rachel Brathwaite, and we bid farewell to Dr. William Byansi, a long-time ICHAD team member, who moved to Boston to start a new position.
