Seminar: The Burke Fellowship at 10 – A Celebration of Innovation in Medical Research & Teaching.
The 10th Anniversary event will bring together past and present Burke Fellows to share the impact of the fellowship on their respective careers. We’ll hear from fellows whose interests have led them to study how economics impacts malaria prevention, treatment, and diagnosis; to develop curricula to teach medical students about the root causes of health disparities; and to lead clinical trials of shortened treatment regimens for drug-resistant tuberculosis.
This year’s diverse group of awardees represents medicine, business, and public health. The three 2019-2020 Burke Fellows are working on critical issues, from bridging the gap between the hype and reality of artificial intelligence in low- and middle-income countries, to understanding the tradeoffs that the poor make when faced with constraints of both time and money, to understanding how issues of cost effectiveness affect equity and distribution of resources.
