Vanderbilt University and Johns Hopkins University Join AMPATH Consortium
AMPATH recently welcomed two new members to the AMPATH consortium of North American universities and medical centers.
Vanderbilt University officially joined the consortium in April 2018 through its School of Medicine. Vanderbilt’s Institute for Global Health will facilitate AMPATH collaborations across the university, specifically for the Departments of Medicine, including the Division of Infectious Diseases, and Anesthesiology.
Johns Hopkins University (JHU) joined AMPATH in July 2018 and will collaborate through its Schools of Public Health, Medicine and Nursing, led by the Johns Hopkins Center for Global Health. JHU plans to collaborate with the Moi University School of Public Health and will focus primarily on the monitoring and evaluation of primary health care and community-based health activities.
Dr. Becky Genberg, Assistant Professor of Epidemiology in JHU’s Bloomberg School of Public Health, shares, “speaking on behalf of the faculty, staff and students from across the JHU Schools of Public Health, Medicine and Nursing, we are thrilled to join the AMPATH consortium and to work together with our main partner the Moi University School of Public Health to further the mission of improving health in western Kenya through rigorous public health research and education.”
The AMPATH consortium now includes 13 members, led by Indiana University. Together, they work together to foster AMPATH’s long-term and mutually beneficial partnership with Moi University and Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital.
