 2014 Intersession Uganda Study Abroad is Underway!



This Intersession, a group of Hopkins students took part in the study abroad program Uganda: Childhood, Health, and Society. The students journeyed to Uganda for a unique and enriching experience that allows them to gain a global perspective on public health. So far, the students have had the opportunity to interact with students from Uganda's Makarere University, meet local experts in their topic areas, visit TORWU (a training site for rural women), volunteer at a local school painting classrooms, and much more!

And, the journey is not over yet! Follow them via their blog here!

A shout out to Brian Boyarsky, Dec. 09 PHS graduate for his outstanding contribution to the HOPE Act!  Signed into law by President Obama on November 21, 2013, read more here.

Congressional sponsors of the new HOPE (HIV Organ Policy Equity) Act say the paper, published in the American Journal of Transplantation by Johns Hopkins transplant surgeon Dorry L. Segev, M.D., Ph.D., and research assistant Brian J. Boyarsky, B.A., was instrumental in driving the issue to the fore. The researchers offered medical guidance and worked with politicians from both sides of the aisle in Congress, as well as with advocacy groups such as the HIV Medicine Association, to ensure its passage.
