Morgan State University (www.morgan.edu) announces that beginning in February 2021 it will be hosting the Central Office of the International Collaboration for Participatory Health Research.
Morgan State University is located in Baltimore, Maryland (USA), and was established in 1867. Morgan State is one of the United States’ Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), and is designated as Maryland’s Preeminent Public Urban Research University.
Morgan is a research institution offering more than 126 academic programs leading to degrees from the baccalaureate to the doctorate. Morgan has a strong track record of international partnerships with China, Brazil, South Africa, Ghana, Botswana, Nigeria, and beyond.
In June 2019, Morgan State University successfully hosted ICPHR’s 10th Annual Working Meeting, the first in the United States. The event was attended by more than 70 individuals from 12 countries around the world.
Morgan serves a multiethnic and multiracial community of students, faculty, and partners outside the university, seeking to ensure that the doors of higher education are opened as wide as possible to as many as possible. In addition to maintaining the integrity of ICPHR, Morgan State plans to generate resources through U.S. federal and other grant opportunities so as to increase ICPHR’s organizational capacity.
Prof. Payam Sheikhattari (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Ms. Gillian Silver (email@example.com), members of ICPHR’s Executive Committee, will lead the transition of the Central Office from Berlin to Baltimore. Contact either of them for more information.
