Tammy Phillips (Research fellow and PhD student in the Division of Epidemiology & Biostatistics) received a visiting scholar award from the Vanderbilt Institute of Global Health (VIGH) and the University of Cape Town's Research Committee and spent the month of May at VIGH in Nashville. During her visit she took part in an Implementation Science boot camp and attended a graduate level grant writing course. In parallel, she worked with her host, Assistant Professor Kate Clouse, on developing a new NIH grant proposal and writing up work from a recently completed project. The project piloted a novel mobile phone application to enhance retention in care among mobile women living with HIV. Tammy presented her PhD work at the VIGH Grand Rounds and had the opportunity to present and record an introductory video on maternal child health and HIV which will form part of a foundational online course for medical students on international clinical rotations.
