First-Year COPHP Student Ali N'Simbo Wins Grayston Day Award

Congratulations to first-year Master of Public Health (MPH) in Community-Oriented Public Health Practice (COPHP) student Ali N'Simbo, who has been awarded the prestigious 2017 Grayston-Day Fellowship from the University of Washington School of Public Health, which comes with a $10,000 award.

Says Ali, who is originally from the Democratic Republic of Congo, “I come from a country with some of the world’s poorest health indicators and I have survived 18 years of war. As a physician, I know what it’s like to work in resource-poor settings and to witness preventable deaths. My vision is of an emergency and primary health care system that meets the needs of the entire family, the pillar of communities.”
