University of Minnesota Partnering With Ugandans: One World, One Health


Be sure to check out Minnesota Medical Foundation's April 19 blog post, which highlights contributions and efforts by U of M Academic Health Center faculty toward reducing the global burden of disease on children in Africa.

Global Pediatrics adjunct faculty member, Robert Opoka (Makerere University; Kampala, Uganda), is quoted, and the joint research efforts of Drs. Opoka and division director, Chandy John, are described in the piece.

Dr. Opoka will be visiting the University of Minnesota this week, where he will give a lecture on bacterial meningitis as well as a separate address to pediatric and medicine-pediatric residents. Both events take place Thursday, May 3.
