Summer Wrap Up and a Look Ahead

Heading into the new academic year at the Brown School, we reflect on our busy and productive summer. After the successful Forum on Child and Adolescent Global Health Research and Capacity Building in Uganda and the Community Research Immersion experience in St. Louis earlier in the summer, Dr. Fred Ssewamala traveled back to Uganda to give the keynote address at a gathering of key stakeholders and top officials in child and adolescent well-being at the National Dissemination of the National Child-Focused Research Agenda and the Launch of the Knowledge Hub in Uganda. In addition, we facilitated and wrapped up the intensive summer research training season with final presentations and a mock study review with trainees from our four NIH-funded research training programs (ACHIEVECHILD-GRFLEAD, and RRT). Our research activities progressed, and our team published numerous papers.

Looking ahead, we are excited to start this season’s ICHAD Speaker Series featuring Dr. Leyla Karimli from UCLA, Dr. John Neslund from Harvard School of Medicine, and Dr. Proscovia Nabunya from Washington University in St. Louis. Members of our team will be busy starting up several new studies. We are recruiting global research trainees for the next cohort of the ACHIEVE global research training program (FIC Global Health Fellows/LAUNCH), and we are seeking a strong dissemination and communications coordinator to join the ICHAD US team at Washington University in St. Louis. As always, we welcome and appreciate your participation and collaboration!
