“DGHSM is at the forefront of developing a more effective way to transfer and promote knowledge for the treatment and prevention of diseases both here in America and particularly in resource-poor areas across the globe,” says Thoman, who is co-President of the Leon Lowenstein Foundation. “I’m so pleased to continue to support their outstanding work.”
Recently, DGHSM launched a course in Global Health Delivery in concert with the Ministry of Health of Rwanda. Students, program managers, and Ministry leaders will analyze case studies and make field visits to develop methods for the improvement of health care delivery.
Such collaboration appeals greatly to Thoman. “DGHSM – and the Medical School as a whole – has enormous potential to improve health care the world over. I am proud to support such an extraordinary Department and faculty.”
