Soil Transmitted Helminths in Honduras- Internal Medicine Grand Rounds: Dr. Ana Sanchez

Today we had the honor of hosting Ana Sanchez, PhD at VCU's Medical Grand Rounds.

Dr. Ana Sanchez was invited on the Behalf of the VCU GlobalHealth and Health Disparities Program (GH2DP) - Honduras Program. Dr. Sanchez has collaborated with VCU GH2DP on reducing the burden of soil transmitted helminths in rural Honduran populations. The lecture also covered the immunologic and health impact of helminthic infections in resource poor settings.

We were honored to have her visit VCU and to share both her research and our collaborative experience in a Medical Grand Rounds format.

Here is the VCU News article  on the event.

Phenomenal lecture, excellent turnout.
