Connect with Fogarty
Fogarty's Chronic, Noncommunicable Diseases and Disorders Across the Lifespan program is building the ranks of researchers and expanding knowledge of chronic diseases in LMICs. Many behaviors that cause NCDs are the result of urbanization, where people adopt more sedentary lifestyles and diets shift to primarily processed, low-fiber foods.
As we mark our 50th year, our community shares viewpoints on how our programs have aided careers and advanced research.
"I can say that for us in Haiti, Fogarty has been the cornerstone of the entire program. Fogarty support has allowed us to train the leaders in our field, who themselves have trained thousands of others."Dr. Bill PapeGHESKIO Director, Fogarty grantee
