Episode #21: Global chronic disease research: Learning from India and Kenya with Drs Jerry Bloomfield and Mark HuffmanApr 16, 2010 15:30 EDT
Chronic diseases do not respect geographical and political boundaries, and as our world becomes a smaller place, it's appropriate that our approach to disease become more global. Drs Jerry Bloomfield and Mark Huffman join the show to share their experiences with the US National Institutes of Health (NIH) Fogarty International Clinical Research Fellows' (FICR-F) program and highlight why global chronic disease research is an enriching bidirectional flow of knowledge and expertise.
