Join me in welcoming this new team for Summer 2022. I am humbled by this interest and commitment.
This diversity shows the growing interest in playing a role in shaping global health, no matter where one lives and what one does.
It is my sheer privilege to learn from and work with my new colleagues, who will write, engage, design, report, and generally support and inform our work in the coming months.

Thank you for being a part of this journey.
