Peru has hosted 14 NPGH Fogarty Fellows since 2012, who have studied a wide range of topics. Many have focused on neurological disorders, such as TB meningitis, neurosyphilis, and the genetics of Parkinson’s Disease, but others have worked on preventative health care to improve breast cancer screening and reduce diarrhea among children in the Amazon. 2014-2015 Fellow Valerie Cortez wrote about her fieldwork experiences for our newsletter.
