1. What is your connection to donation?
I’m connected to donation and transplant personally and professionally. I’m a research scientist at Johns Hopkins specializing in live donor follow up and mHealth innovations related to live organ donation. Additionally, I’m a living donor myself. I donated my kidney to my cousin, Marc, on July 10, 2009.
Congratulations to ERGOT’s Dr. Allan Massie for joining the American Journal of Transplantation’s Editorial Board as a statistical editor! We are thrilled that you continue to contribute meaningfully to research in the transplant community.
This week, ERGOT Faculty Dr. Tanjala Purnell-Idowu and Bloomberg Distinguished Professor Dr. Lisa Angeline Cooper launched a new course in the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, “Applications of Innovative Methods in Health Equity Research.” The course involved an amazing team of faculty members, including ERGOT Faculty Dr. Macey Henderson and several faculty members from the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Equity. Students (from all over the world) were very enthusiastic and actively engaged in the course and learned about novel methods, practical tools, and skills required to conduct health equity research and to translate evidence-based strategies into practice and policy.
We are proud to support Dr. Purnell and her ongoing work addressing health equity.
