Global Health Research Associates' Seminar Series:
The Eck Institute for Global Health (EIGH) collaborates with local organizations, including the St. Joseph County Department of Health, to facilitate research and support programs that improve the well-being of residents in and around the county while providing extensive practical experience for masters-level graduates from Notre Dame. Through the Global Health Research Associate (GHRA) program, Notre Dame graduates work closely with local partners to provide technical assistance for research and program development, implementation, and evaluation. Mary Wachira, one of our three GHRAs and a graduate of the Keough School's Master of Global Affairs program, will discuss her work with the health department and highlight her activities on health equity and social determinants of health within the county.
