Global Health Initiative

The Global Health Initiative is an exciting new area of research promulgated by a group of Kellogg School MBA students in 2005. Enlisting the expertise of Professors Daniel Diermeier at the Kellogg School and David Kelso at the McCormick School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, these students have collaborated with biomedical engineering students and Abbott Laboratories in an effort to devise a way to deliver AIDS medication and detection devices economically to African nations and other impoverished countries. This important project serves as an example of the Ford Center mission of encouraging interdisciplinary partnerships, without which, this project would not be possible.
