Our 2017-18 Annual Report highlights teams affiliated with @dukelaw, like this one: Animal Waste Management and Global Health. This team, which was co-led by Duke Law Clinical Professor Michelle Nowlin, developed a website that provides a comprehensive overview of sustainable animal waste management practices. This team’s work is especially relevant in the wake of #hurricaneflorence, which demonstrated the fragility of NC hog waste lagoons and the speed at which animal waste can contaminate local water supplies.

This fall, Duke’s Master of Science in #GlobalHealth program welcomed its 10th cohort of grad students. To celebrate, @dukeghi shared a fantastic multimedia feature highlighting 10 of their stellar alumni, such as Elizabeth Monahan ’17. Elizabeth was on a Bass Connections team that studied human and environmental health in Peru. After graduation, she spent a year as a Global Health Fellow at Timmy Global Health, where she ran the global health program for high school students and helped college students prep for service trips. Read Elizabeth’s story, and check out additional global health student pathways on DGHI’s website. @dukestudents @dukeglobaled @dukealumni @dukeuniversity

In the U.S., drug overdoses now account for more accidental deaths than car crashes. A Bass Connections team explored the extent of the crisis in Durham and throughout the state. Team members published their research in the North Carolina Medical Journal, wrote op-ed articles in The Hill and the Durham Herald Sun and even appeared on a podcast to talk about their work. They also engaged the Duke community through mental health first aid trainings and developed partnerships with Durham first responders and advocacy groups.

Each year, vaccines are estimated to prevent 2.5 million childhood deaths. But nearly 1 in 10 infants didn’t receive any vaccinations in 2016. This Bass Connections team worked with a low-cost health provider in Roatan, Honduras, to develop and pilot mVax. This #mobilehealth app is designed to aid in the collection, access and storage of immunization data, bypassing the hassle of paper forms and making it easier to immunize more local children.

More news from the fantastic Environmental Epidemiology in Latin America team in Peru: “In our 250km stretch of this one river, we count 120 separate active mining operations. Each individual setup displaces a small mountain of sediment from the river bottom and can extract 20-30 grams of gold in just 24 hours. From this, the miners can expect a small fortune...” But at what environmental and health costs? Check out the link in our bio to learn more about this team’s work tracking mining and mercury along the Madre de Dios River. @dukeghi @dukeuenergy @dukeenvironment @dukestudents

Nine teams of undergrads (each of which was led by a grad student mentor) shared their research and personal experiences at the Story+ Summer Research Symposium. Students spent six weeks digging in archives, documenting oral histories, developing educational curricula, designing graphic memoirs and more. Can’t wait to share videos from the symposium soon. In the meantime, here are some 🔥 pics of our student presenters. @fhi_duke @dukelibraries @dukestudents

Senior Sam Sadler is currently in Kampala, Uganda, conducting infection control research in a local neurosurgery ward. Sam won a Bass Connections Follow-On Research Award to continue the work she began on her Bass Connections team. Excited to hear updates from Sam later this summer!
