CGH Friends of Global Health Professional Development Award
In December 2020, the Center for Global Health released the first announcement for the “University of Illinois at Chicago Friends of Global Health Professional Development Award.” The award was focused on supporting the professional development of up to four clinicians, researchers, or advocates from low- or middle-income countries (LMIC) and helping them become “Global Health Change Makers.”
This year’s awards are open to global health leaders who reside in Ukraine or in a low- and middle-income countries who have received refugees from Ukraine. The intent is to support health care providers involved in addressing healthcare needs of the victims of the current war in Ukraine. The focus can be on any relevant area of health or mental health and can include clinicians, researchers or advocates.
