Third-Year Students Receive Prestigious National and International Fellowships
Three third-year Pritzker students have been awarded prestigious fellowships to conduct research projects over the course of the 2008–2009 academic year.
Josh Wallbrecht will participate in the 2008–2009 Fulbright Program to study in Ecuador in conjunction with Foundation Human Nature (FHN). FHN has established a health center in the community of La Y de la Laguna to serve that area and the surrounding communities. He will educate the population about tools to treat many common ailments within their own homes, thus eliminating their need to travel great distances and endure hardship.
Zach Rosner will begin a Doris Duke Charitable Foundation International Clinical Research Fellowship in July, spending two months in Boston planning his project. He will then spend eight months conducting a mentored international clinical research experience in sub-Saharan Africa, and will return to Boston in May 2009 to conclude the project.
Jamie Weiss Krashin was one of just eight students nationwide selected to participate in the CDC Experience. The year-long fellowship takes place at the Center for Disease Control in Atlanta, Georgia. During her tenure, Jamie will work primarily with several localities to develop, disseminate, and evaluate an intervention that will increase symptom recognition and lead to improved detection of primary syphilis.
