Below, Fogarty Fellow Alumnus Dr. Gerald Bloomfield and Dr. Mark Huffman discuss issues in cardiology and global chronic diseases. Drs. Bloomfield & Huffman were introduced at the NIH Orientation for Fogarty Fellows in 2010 before departing for their fellowships to work respectively with Duke University & Moi University, and Emory University & the Public Health Foundation of India.  They went on to co-author a paper in Circulation, which outlines some perspectives, opportunities and challenges surrounding global cardiovascular health research, and were highlighted in the Fogarty International Center’s Newsletter, Global Health Matters.

Dr. Bloomfield has since joined the faculty at Duke University, where he serves as a site director for our fellowship site at Moi University and Dr. Huffman is an Assistant Professor at the Northwestern University Center for Global Health.
