What an exciting day! We are down in Washington DC making our international debut at the 8th annual CUGH conference with our fellow colleagues in global health from Duke University, Harvard University, Stanford University, Georgetown University, and John Hopkins just to name a few! We can’t wait to see what the next few days have in store and are gearing up to present tomorrow! #CUGH2017 #PromoteHealth #ReduceWaste #GiveGlobalGood
Mohan Sudabattula, OUR Travel Grant Awardee and Undergraduate Research Leader, was recently invited to present his research at the 8th Annual CUGH Conference in Washington, DC on April 7 – 9, 2017. This professional international conference is hosted by Columbia University, Stellenbosch University & the University of Peradeniya and focuses on developments in global health.
Mohan was one of only a handful of undergraduate students selected to present their research alongside fellow co-workers from Georgetown, Duke, Harvard, Stanford, et cetera.
In addition, Mohan was selected to be published in the annual publication titled “Annuals of Global Health.” This publication, formerly published as The Mount Sinai Journal of Medicine, is a peer-reviewed, hybrid Open Access Journal focused on global health. The Journal’s mission is to advance and disseminate knowledge of global health, promote research, and foster the prevention and treatment of disease worldwide by supporting open dissemination and lively discourse about a wide range of the most important topics in global health and medicine.
Mohan’s research is on his international medical non-profit, Project Embrace. As an organization, Project Embrace is dedicated to the reduction of global health inequalities and promotion of a healthy planet through the interception of mislabeled medical excess to be reused by patients in need across the globe.
Mohan notes that “the only reason why [he] was able to present at this conference was through the support of OUR via Travel Grant.”
