Congratulations to Johns Hopkins International Injury Research Unit assistant scientist, Dr. Qingfeng Li, who was recently awarded an Education Innovation Award from the Department of International Health at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. The Education Innovation Award was created within the Department of International Health to encourage the development of new and innovative methods of teaching.

Dr. Li will receive funding to help develop modifications to the course Evaluation of Safety Interventions in Low- and Middle-Income Countries. His proposal includes the integration of case studies into the course, recording new sessions, and building a systems approach into the syllabus. He will also modify the course to make it available as part of the department’s Health Systems summer institute in 2018.

This month, the Johns Hopkins International Injury Research Unit (JH-IIRU) is featured in the latest issue of The Globe, the newsletter of the Department of International Health at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.

The article highlights not only the unit’s overall capacity-building activities in low- and middle-income countries and the training of trauma care professionals as it relates to the Road Safety in 10 Countries project (RS-10) but also features new grants the unit is working on in the global field of injury prevention.  One such grant is the Chronic Consequences of Trauma, Injuries and Disability (Chronic TRIAD), an NIH award that will strengthen work on the long-term health and economic consequences of injury and disability in Uganda.

The piece also outlines new courses in injury prevention and a seven-module on-line certificate program in road traffic injury prevention and control that will be available this spring, all at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.
