November 11, 2020 at 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
Dilshad Jaff is the first Gillings Humanitarian Fellow. Dr. Jaff completed his MPH (’15) and continued at the school until July 2019 when leaving to return to the field as a humanitarian physician. He continues as an adjunct associate professor in the maternal and child health department. He has over 20 years of experience working on complex humanitarian crises in conflict zones in both the Middle East and Africa. As a Fellow, Dr. Jaff will present seminars and lectures; travel to North Carolina, when that becomes possible, to meet with students, faculty and people on campus around humanitarian health issues; support the Gillings humanitarian internships which have just been established and continue to collaborate and publish papers. During the seminar, Dr. Jaff will share his current experience, challenges and solutions working in complex emergency settings.
