Project Description

Noncommunicable Diseases (NCD) continue to dominate as a major cause of health-related morbidity, chronic disabilities, and mortality, exceeding 50% worldwide; the Middle East and North Africa region are no exception. The Scholars in Health Research Program is an interfaculty collaborative initiative that provides short, intermediate, and long-term training, to health professionals engaged in population- based and clinical translational NCD research. Its multidisciplinary and cross-cutting approach integrates a solid curriculum in quantitative skills, advances in science and technology, hands-on applied training, thus providing the basis for effective public heath interventions to promote Health across the life course.
