Child Family Health International Launches Virtual Opportunities for Global Health Education

Nonprofit leader in Global Health Education launches a portfolio of virtual opportunities for participants and students at undergraduate and graduate levels including internships, courses, public health practica, and more.

OAKLAND, Calif. - May 22, 2020 - (

Child Family Health International (CFHI), the leading nonprofit organization providing community-based Global Health Education Programs for hundreds of students and universities, today announced the launch of a variety of Virtual Opportunities including internships, courses, practica, and more. CFHI is also working closely with academic institutions to offer custom and tailored global health learning opportunities for students. Many of these opportunities are offered in collaboration with CFHI partner Aperian Global.

As a United Nations-recognized, award-winning leader in global health education, CFHI's programs are made possible thanks to long-standing collaborations with global partners in 12 countries. All programs are grounded in Fair-Trade Learning principles and rooted in ethical, sustainable best practices. Virtual programs offer participants the ability to engage in competency-based global learning from home, including mentorship and engagement with community leaders and experts from around the world.

Many of CFHI's global partners are on the front lines of the COVID-19 response in their communities; they bring this expertise in global health to their work with CFHI participants. CFHI Medical Director in La Paz, Bolivia, Dr. Cecilia Uribe de Chavez shares: "All health professionals work a lot more now, but it is an honor to be on the front lines of this battle. It is exhausting yet beautiful and satisfying." CFHI's Medical Director in Uganda, Dr. Geoffrey Anguyo, is leading a public health information campaign about COVID-19 via radio, while Dr. Wilfrido Torres, CFHI Medical Director in Guayaquil, Ecuador is helping to save lives and provide crucial information to his community as an epidemiologist and senior employee at the Ministry of Health. Each of CFHI's global partners are able to share their wealth of expertise and experience in global health, health systems, and the practice of clinical care in lower-resource settings with CFHI participants.

"It's an honor to offer these virtual opportunities," says CFHI Executive Director Jessica Evert, MD. "As individuals and institutions work to adapt global health education programming to new realities in the face of COVID-19, CFHI is a partner to help extend capacity and expertise for global health learning."

Sep 28, 2020

NEW YORK — Cynthia Erivo and Greta Gerwig rocked sparkling chokers as the Golden Globes red carpet kicked off Sunday, with Erivo in a hand-beaded custom Thom Browne gown and Gerwig in black and cream. Both went off-shoulder for the big night in Beverly Hills, California. Erivo, the “Harriet” star and fashion standout, said her dress includes designs of her favorite flower, the peony, at the hem and in her lining. The short-sleeve gown, Erivo told E!, took 800 hours. A huge blue stone dropped from her short necklace. Shades of pink had an early trend moment on Kirsten Dunst...

Judge: No slander in Alec Baldwin's comments on parking spat

Sep 28, 2020

NEW YORK — Alec Baldwin didn't slander a man in interviews about a parking dispute that turned physical, a judge has ruled as dueling lawsuits between the actor and the other driver continue. Baldwin's remarks — including claims that Wojciech Cieszkowski's driving was “really fast,” “really aggressive” and made the actor think his wife and son were about to be run over — were "hyperbole" and "rhetorical illustrations," Manhattan judge David B. Cohen wrote Thursday. “They are words of frustration with someone's driving,” not accusations that amount to slander, Cohen wrote. He tossed out Cieszkowski's slander claim, but his assault...

Innovative fashion designers lead the way on sustainability

Sep 28, 2020

LONDON — Innovative fashion designers are turning to such things as horseradish and nettles to make sustainable clothing and accessories to the delight of a growing number of buyers. While more consumers are paying closer attention to how the production of goods impacts the environment, old habits die hard. A buy-and-toss mentality persists despite a boost from celebrities helping to drive the upcycle and vintage movements. Actress Maggie Q, who created an activewear line from recycled fabrics, is among activists who see plenty of room for improvement. She says she feels "sick about fast fashion.'' "You hear people say, 'Well,...

Streep, Miranda and Stone are named as Met Gala co-0chairs

Sep 28, 2020

NEW YORK — Next year's Met Gala may be the closest we'll ever come to getting a Miranda Priestly moment at the starry event. Meryl Streep has been named as a co-chair of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute. The Oscar-winner played Priestly, a thinly veiled fictional version of Vogue editor Anna Wintour, in the movie "The Devil Wears Prada." Wintour clearly has no hard feelings because she selected Streep as a co-chair along with Lin-Manuel Miranda and fellow Oscar-winner Emma Stone. Designer Nicolas Ghesquiere rounds out the group. The gala's theme is "About Time: Fashion and Duration," which...

ABC says interview with Epstein accuser wasn't ready to air

Sep 28, 2020

NEW YORK — ABC News faced questions Tuesday about its reluctance to air a sensitive story of alleged sexual misconduct after a leaked video emerged of reporter Amy Robach complaining about how her bosses handled an interview with a Jeffrey Epstein accuser. The conservative web site Project Veritas released video of Robach venting that "every day I get more and more pissed" that her 2015 interview with Virginia Giuffre never made the air. Robach made her remarks late in August while sitting in a Times Square studio with a microphone but not on the air. ABC said Tuesday that the...
