On June 5, the Institute of International Health hosted a luncheon roundtable discussion and presentation for a delegation from the Maktabah Jafariyah Knowledge and Research Academy, North Gujarat, India. The Academy is a private, community based initiative to be a catalyst of change to enhance the education level of the region. There are three pillars to the mission of Maktabah Jafariyah: education, community development, and economic development. The delegation visited IIH to explore partnering with Michigan State University to focus on an integrated and holistic approach to problem solve with Maktabah Jafariah. Three MSU faculty, Dr. Ed Rosick, Family and Community Medicine (COM), Dr. Jim Trosko, Pediatrics and Human Development (CHM), and Greg Gulick, College of Human Medicine, gave brief presentations in the areas of nutrition, telemedicine, and community health.
