Hi everyone, for those of you I haven't met yet, I am the Editor of the Global Health Hub (www.globalhealthhub.org), a website that connects global health practitioners to the information and research they need to do good work. We highlight interesting, interdisciplinary voices talking about ideas that make you think and question and want to try new things. We're always looking for original contributions, so please feel free to reach out! We're partnering with GHDonline and I'm a new member of the GHD team.
I’m also a candidate for a dual MPH/MA degree in Global Health and Latin American Studies at Vanderbilt University. I get excited about using social science and deep contextual knowledge to improve public health programs, especially for marginalized Latin American communities. I really enjoy project management, problem-solving and troubleshooting, setting up systems and organizations, and connecting research to implementation. I'm looking forward to building a partnership between GHDonline and the Global Health Hub.
I'll be popping into communities to share interesting resources, news, tools, or anything else that comes across the Global Health Hub that might be of interest.
Here's something: a new research study on how increased exposure to CO2 on public transportation in Cape Town (as a result of people being forced to move away from urban centers) has contributed to the TB epidemic: http://www.globalhealthhub.org/2016/05/31/forced-removals-embodied-as-tubercu...
