Huge congrats to the global mental health team led by DGHI MSc-GH grad and doctoral certificate candidate Elsa Friis, for winning the Duke STEAM Challenge for their app, Pocket Counselor: Health in Hand, a mobile app designed to help task-shift mental health counseling to lay practitioners in Kenya! STEAM is an interdisciplinary approach that bridges STEM disciplines with the Arts, humanities, and social sciences in meaningful ways. The team also included global health undergrads Christina Schmidt and Sofia Stafford. This work builds on the work of assistant global health professor Eve Puffer.

MSc-GH student Hillary Richards reflects on her fieldwork in Nepal last summer: "One year later, it has been quite an experience seeing how things have unfolded since the earthquake: which trainings and support services have been implemented, how expansive the coverage is, how many people have been helped, and how people have gone about the process of getting back to 'normal.'"

Reducing Health Disparities at Home and Globally
Introduction
The Duke Global Health Institute (DGHI) works to reduce health disparities in our local community and worldwide. Recognizing that many global health problems stem from economic, social, environmental, political and health care inequalities, DGHI brings together interdisciplinary teams to solve complex health problems and to train the next generation of global health scholars.
