Past Fogarty Kuskaya Fellows

 

Fogarty Kuskaya Fellows are young Peruvian and US graduate students and post-doctoral trainees who are working together in multidisciplinary research teams to find innovative solutions for improving health. During the 2015-2016 Fellowship year, we have twelve Fellows - eight Peruvians and four US - working on various key issues: climate change and health, One Health, health communications, a scholarship program for low resource and indigenous communities called Beca 18, and urbanization and health.
