Research & Outreach in Gyumri, Armenia

After extensive preparation, our first opportunity to serve in Armenia arrived!  While at the Gyumri Medical Center in Gyumri, Armenia, we had the opportunity to conduct outreach for: Breast Cancer; Cholesterol; Nutrition; BMI; Blood Pressure; and Blood Glucose testing.  Additionally, we were able to conduct research on our IRB approved research projects.  More to come!

Research & Outreach in Gumri, Armenia

We were able to conduct research and outreach in beautiful Gumri, Armenia.  This was 2016’s first foray into the field, and we finally got to put all of our preparation to the test.  The people were wonderful and welcoming, and the administrators of the hospital were accommodating and extremely supportive.  Also, Shirak Public TV station profiled Global Health Armenia, and interviewed Jennifer Yoo and Dr. Hripsime Zatikyan Wright.

Flying halfway across the world, University of Utah students are once again in ancient Armenia to conduct research and outreach.  Our wonderful partners at the Ministry of Health of Armenia, Yerevan State Medical University, the Armenian American Wellness Center, and many more.

Here is our team pictured with Dr. Sergey Khachatryan, Deputy Minister in the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Armenia.  Dr. Khachatryan is a wonderful leader and teacher, without whom our research and outreach work would not be possible.
