2019 Breman Global Health Fellows Conduct Research Abroad

Each year the Breman Global Health Fellowship is awarded to support students interested in global health and public service careers in a foreign country by funding clinical, field or laboratory research. In 2019, Agnes Premkumar and Miles Lambert-Peck received the fellowship and were able to participate in research projects in Costa Rica and Uganda, respectively.

Agnes Premkumar

Agnes Premkumar, a medical student, spent six weeks in Costa Rica to work on the development and assessment of an educational campaign around sexual and reproductive health for indigenous populations in the Brunca region.

“I will definitely carry the lessons and experiences from these past six weeks for the rest of my life.”

Miles Lambert-Peck

Miles Lambert-Peck, a dual master’s degree student studying social entrepreneurship and public health, spent two months in Uganda. While there he was able to conduct research with coffee farmers whose land directly borders Bwindi Impenetrable National Park with the goal of assessing the knowledge, behaviors, and practices that these frontline agricultural communities employ towards the surrounding wildlife. 

“Everyday in Uganda was a new adventure bristling with opportunity for self-growth, making new friends, and overcoming challenging obstacles.”
