Global Health in the News

Each year, UVM and clinical affiliate Western Connecticut Health Network sends students and clinicians to practice medicine in developing countries. Last week, the Hearst Connecticut Media Group profiled Sohi Ashraf, M.D., a third-year resident at Norwalk Hospital, for a five-part series on his journey to Uganda. The series also featured Majid Sadigh, M.D., director of the Global Health Program, and Class of 2018 students Mary Kate LoPiccolo and Alexandra Miller.
