UIS Students and Faculty Research in Ghana
Three faculty and seven students have traveled to Ghana, West Africa, this summer to do research in the prevalence and risk factors for diabetes, hypertension and hepatitis C co-infection with HIV among Ghana’s people. The group is also assessing water quality by collecting samples from local sources and testing for coliform, E. coli and other harmful substances. Take a look at Alexandra Madden’s UIS Snapchat Takeover from Ghana. UIS is proud to offer a program in a country outside of students’ comfort zone, with dramatic cultural differences. (That’s on top of the research experience!) Professors on the trip include Dr. Josiah Alamu, Public Health; Dr. Dennis Ruez, Environmental Studies; and Dr. Kamau Kemayo, African-American Studies.
Academic Excellence that Empowers the Future – for all of us.
