The USC Institute on Inequalities in Global Health named two Keck School of Medicine of USC students as 2019 Breman Global Health Fellows: Miles Lambert-Peck, a dual master’s degree student studying social entrepreneurship and public health, and Agnes Premkumar, a medical student.
The Breman Global Health Fellowship is funded by a generous donation to deepen Keck School students’ appreciation of health problems in developing countries. This grant fellowship supports students interested in international health and public service careers by funding clinical, field or laboratory research experience in a foreign country.
