Drs. Robin Cunningham and George Coritsidis, worked with Stony Brook medical students Michael Subrize, Amy Fuller, and Bennett Hong on a research study involving the use of portable ultrasound in aiding mission physicians in making accurate diagnoses.  Their poster: Portable Ultrasonography Enhances Diagnostic Capability in the Peruvian Andes was presented in June 2014 at the Consortium of Universities for Global Health Conference in Washington, D.C. The annual Consortium of Universities for Global Health Conference facilitates the sharing of knowledge to address global health challenges. It is dedicated to creating equity and reducing health disparities worldwide. The abstract was also published in the Annals of Global Health Journal. Portable ultrasonography enhances diagnostic capability in the Peruvian Andes. Annals of Global Health, Vol. 80 Iss. 2, March-April, 2014a* For those interested in reviewing their poster click here.

Congratulations to our medical students and physicians for their hard work and dedication.
