The world’s largest academic global health conference, CUGH 2022 featured 16 poster presentations with one or more U-M authors—32 in all, representing 8 different schools, colleges, centers and institutes.

“I’m pleased as always to see U-M so well represented at this year’s conference. The breadth and depth of featured projects speaks to the strength of our global health community. CUGH is a great showcase for these efforts and a good opportunity for participants to expand their own networks,” said Joseph Kolars, MD, MACP, Senior Associate Dean for Education and Global Initiatives and chair of the CUGH board of directors.

CUGH ran March 28 thru April 1. Because CUGH 2022 was virtual, presentations remain available for registered participants.

U-M authors represent the Medical School, School of Public Health, Nursing School, and more, with collaborators from across the U.S. and around the world. Study subjects include research capacity strengthening in Ethiopia; maternal mortality in northern Ghana; sustainable palm weevil farming in Liberia; COVID-19’s impact on global health education programs, and more.
