Fellows 2010 to 2014

In the fall of 2010 we recruited and identified our first fellow in the new CHE fellowship program. Edna Moturi graduated in August of 2011 and is now working as an Associate Public Health Officer in Dadaab Refugee Camp in Kenya. She is currently going through the EIS program at the CDC.

In 2011, Godwin Mindra came to us from UNICEF in South Sudan.  His main research area was on nodding syndrome, and he worked with Phil Brachman and Carlos Navarro-Colorado (CDC) on his thesis. Post-graduation, Mindra returned to Juba, South Sudan and is working for UNICEF as a Health Specialist.

Our fellow for the 2012 – 13 school year was Gedi Mohamed. He came to us from Nairobi, Kenya, where he was a health team leader with International Medical Corps in Dadaab, Kenya.  He holds an MBChB from Makerere University in Uganda (1999). Mohamed was nominated by his agency (IMC) for the fellowship. He has been on the front line of many disasters including most recently the famine in the Horn of Africa. He led the medical response for MSF in Dagaheley, Dadaab during the recent famine.

In 2014, we recruited Dr. Ramullah Kasozi. Ram immigrated to Canada as a refugee from Uganda. Her research as a fellow focused on Sexual and Reproductive Health and worked on a project for the Inter-Agency Working Group on Reproductive Health in Crisis. She's now part of a research project with University Hospitals in Cleveland as a Clinical Research Scholar. She is focused on HPV leading to head and neck cancers in Uganda.
