In a year in which IEI has focused on the importance of world-class teaching, I’m excited to see us create spaces for you to “think and do” in support of helping our students to develop a strong foundation of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) —  disciplines critical to competing on the global stage.

Yesterday, we heard from three visionary community health leaders in our webinar “Strengthening Health Systems in Resource-Limited Areas: Lessons from Rural South Africa and Rural North Carolina.” Dr. Mosa Moshabela and Dr. Bernhard Gaede (University of KwaZulu-Natal, Centre for Rural Health, Durban, South Africa) shared strategies for the delivery of HIV care services in rural areas, while Dr. R.W. “Chip” Watkins (Community Care of North Carolina, Asheville, NC) explained his innovative plan to place healthcare management students into practices to facilitate the Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) recognition process. These men would benefit from people proficient in STEM disciplines to carry out their important work.
