Berry Presents at Emory’s Rollins School of Public Health Forum

Earlier this month, Beerstecher-Blackwell Distinguished Term Scholar Dr. Diane Berry and Dr. Lidia G. Compeán Ortiz presented their research “Learning to Live with Diabetes: A Study in Low-Income Adults in Mexico” at Global Partnerships to Advance Non-Communicable Disease Research within the Sustainable Development Goals Agenda—a forum hosted by Emory University’s Rollins School of Public Health.

For the past two years, Dr. Diane Berry has served as an international mentor for Dr. Lidia G. Compeán Ortiz from Universidad Autόnoma de Tamaulipas, School of Nursing, Tampico, México through the Emory Public Health Leadership and Implementation Academy for Non-Communicable Diseases Scholars Program (PH-LEADER) through the Rollins School of Public Health.

The PH-LEADER Program offers a collaborative interdisciplinary professional development program established to provide training in implementation sciences and leadership for public health professionals working in the field of non-communicable diseases in low- and middle-income countries.

The PH-LEADER Program is designed to match established researchers with health professionals to dynamically and creatively organize and deploy resources, plan and implement interventions, evaluate and develop policies, and provide leadership to strengthen health systems.
