UGA Research Scientist Receives Fogarty International Center Award from NIH

War-exposure, gender-based violence, and extreme poverty following 14 years of civil war in Liberia has resulted in mental and sexual health challenges that place young pregnant women and their unborn children at risk. To address the needs of this vulnerable population, Dr. Tamora Callands, an assistant research scientist in the department of health promotion and behavior at the University of Georgia College of Public Health, was recently awarded a five-year, $656,348 grant from the Fogarty International Center of the National Institutes of Health.
