Celebrating 50 Years of Fogarty: Impact and Mentoring
On April 16, watch the live stream here
We will celebrate Fogarty’s impact and mentorship felt here at Johns Hopkins. First, Fogarty director Dr. Roger Glass will discuss the importance of global health and insights for the 21st century. Then, Dr. Jason Farley (of Johns Hopkins School of Nursing) will talk about building a successful, interdisciplinary global health career. There will also be a mentoring panel where global health mentors and mentees of all three schools discuss building their relationships and how it shaped their careers.
Over the last 50 years, NIH’s Fogarty International Center has been involved in extraordinary strides in global health. In 2014, Fogarty’s response during the Ebola outbreak helped keep the pandemic from spreading. Additionally, Fogarty’s HIV/AIDS research shaped US treatment protocols.
