Students in new global health graduate program evaluate Haiti cholera project

Catholic Relief Services (CRS) in Haiti has asked the University of Notre Dame’s Eck Institute for Global Health to evaluate one of its cholera programs implemented after the deadly fall 2010 outbreak that began in the aftermath of the catastrophic 7.0 earthquake.

Incoming students Annette Ruth and Lindsey McAlarnen, who will join Notre Dame’s new Master of Science in Global Health degree program in the fall, are in Haiti with project leader Juan Carlos Guzmán, a member of the Eck Institute and director of research for the Institute for Latino Studies to evaluate the programs.
