USC, in partnership with Addis Ababa University in Ethiopia, received a joint planning grant from the Fogarty International Center of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) last month to establish a research and training hub focused on environmental and occupational health in East Africa.

The Department of Preventive Medicine at the Keck School of Medicine of USC and the USC Institute for Global Health applied to the Global Environmental and Occupational Health (GEOHealth) program, an initiative overseen by the NIH to pair institutions in the United States and in low- or middle-income countries to plan research, training and curriculum development that addresses and informs health policy issues.
