GHRI Workshop
The Global Health Reciprocal Innovation (RI) project , coordinated by Fogarty's Center for Global Health Studies (CGHS), seeks to highlight how health innovations that have been researched, developed and implemented in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) can be adapted and adopted to address similar challenges in U.S. In partnership with other NIH Institutes, Centers and Offices (ICOs) and the RI research community, the project seeks to explore methods, frameworks, concepts, and case examples of reciprocal innovation that will advance this area of research. This workshop features Sparkman Center Director, Dr. Janet Turan.
