Gaps in Podoconiosis Training

The newest episode in UGHE’s Research for Equity podcast series speaks to Dr. Janna Schurer, One Health Assistant Professor and Dr. Agazi Fitsum Gebreselassie, MGHD '20 and Lecturer in UGHE’s Center for One Health. The episode, hosted by MGHD ‘20 alumni and UGHE Faculty Gloria Igihozo, deep dives into ‘podoconiosis’ - a highly preventable neglected tropical disease affecting approximately 4 million people worldwide. Their research - ‘Far from the views of decision-makers’ - examines education as a powerful tool to bridging the knowledge gap around podoconiosis, improving treatment and preventative advice and the lives of those affected in Africa and beyond.
