Touro Faculty Receives Research Grant

Dr. Sahai Burrowes, assistant professor of public health, and her team were awarded a two-year, $280,000 research grant – a partnership between the Ethiopian Midwives Association (EMwA), Touro University – California MPH Program, and the University of California, Berkeley School of Public Health’s Bixby Center, which was approved by the AmplifyChange donor consortium. The project, which will be led by EMwA, will build a national evidence base on the prevalence and determinants of healthcare provider abortion stigma in Ethiopia by conducting joint research projects, creating research fellowships for Ethiopian university students, and providing research methods training and technical assistance.
