Recently, I had a great conversation with Dave Reidel and Torri Ross, Midd alums from the Class of 1998. They will soon leave for Ghana for a two-year stint with the HIV/AIDS programs funded by PEPFAR (President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief). After graduation, Dave went to medical school at Penn State, completed a residency in internal medicine at Johns Hopkins, and then completed a fellowship in infectious diseases at University of Maryland. An HIV/AIDS expert, Dave has pursued several research projects in India, Singapore, Malawi, Zambia, Tanzania, and Rwanda. Not to be upstaged, Torri earned an MPH at Tulane and then spent two years in the Peace Corps as a community health volunteer in Nepal. She returned to the US and settled at Johns Hopkins for the next five years and did research in women’s health with one study based in Ghana. Torri then completed an RN in nursing, and for the past year has worked as a nurse at the University of Maryland. Oh yeah, at some point in their peripatetic lives they managed to get married.

Torri and Dave’s passionate interest in global health is shared by many other Midd alums. UCLA Assistant Professor Annie Rimoin is investigating the emergence of monkeypox as a human disease in Africa. Rick Hodes has dedicated much of his professional life to caring for patients in Ethiopia, and has formed an international network of surgeons that perform corrective surgery on Ethiopian children. As the president of Save the Children, Charlie MacCormack leads an organization that is respected around the world.

I would like to hear from others in the Middlebury community who are working in global health. Write back with your stories and we will begin to build an alumni network as a resource for current students. Why would such a resource be useful? Well, so far this year, four students are busy designing majors in global health and development though our independent scholar program. A fifth proposal is already in committee review. These students are mining our curriculum for courses in global health and development and have created a solid foundation. Summer internships in global health would enhance the meaning and significance of this academic work, and so I am eager to know of off-campus opportunities that I can share with interested students.

I would also like to know whether there is interest out there in formalizing these curricular interests in global health. By assembling the right combination of courses in sociology and anthropology, political science, economics, foreign languages, and the sciences, along with unique opportunities to pursue internships in global health, perhaps through study abroad, we could create a minor in global health. Is this a good idea? Post a comment and let us know.

    Creating a sense of trust in just one teaser or promotional clip that takes less than 60 seconds is far from the mind, but what to do? Should this feeling be ignored at all? Tolo Film has another solution. In the field of video advertising, we have two types of videos, one is an advertising teaser, the other is an industrial film. Let me first give a brief definition of industrial film: When you show the process of forming and processing a product in the form of a video, it is called an industrial film or industrial clip that has a time of one minute or more (but usually 5 to 6 minutes), of course, includes not only the product, but also a business or service that is providing services or products.

    مردم محصولات خوب را دوست دارند، ولی بیشتر از آن محصولاتی که از مکان های حرفه ای تولدی می شوند را دوست دارند.

    با توجه به وب سایت های اشتراک گذاری امروزی، برند ها به راحتی میتوانند احساسات خود را از طریق تیزر منتفل کنند.

    استفاده از ویدیو برای نشان دادن دنیایی که پشت صحنه تولید محصولات هست، راه خوبی برای مشتریان است که ارتباط شخصی با برند شما را شکل دهند.

    ویدیو از فرهنگ برند شما، شما را به واقعی تر بودن نزدیک می کند، و اگر بینندگان از آن لذت ببرند، احتمال بیشتری دارد تا با برند شما ارتباط صمیمی برقرار کنند. و پیام شما را با دوستان خود به اشتراک بگذارند. کلیک کنید.

    این کلیپ ها می توانند هرچیزی باشند، از تولید یک کلیپ از فضای شرکت تا مصاحبه با کارمند یا هرچیزی دیگری که پویایی شرکت شما را منحصربه فرد نشان می دهد.

    نکته: کارمندان شما بهتر می توانند برند و شما را معرفی کنند و کارگران دوست دارند با هیجان در مورد محل کار خود با هیجان صحبت کنند. به این ترتیب تکه های مصاحبه کارمندان خود را در تیزر خود قرار دهید.

    Some people associate happiness with their health, some with the amount of their account balance, and some with a good job or physical condition, but many people with good physical condition find a bank account full of money and exceptional jobs that they are not really happy with. They do not enjoy themselves. For more information on the topic of happiness, refer to the iranmodir website.

    Indeed, this is a typical issue and has a simple arrangement. Most importantly, you should check your gadget settings. Odds are you may have physically handicapped the screen pivot include. It might have happened coincidentally however you despite everything need to check. On the off chance that that doesn’t work, essentially take a stab at restarting the gadget.
