Downs Fellows Named for 2014

Twenty-three Yale students prepare for international health research this summer.

Twenty-three Downs Fellows from four Yale graduate schools and an academic have been named for 2014 and will soon travel to destinations around the world to conduct original research in public health, medicine and health care.

The Fellows come from the Yale schools of public health, medicine, nursing, forestry and the anthropology department. The students comprise the largest group of Fellows in recent memory and will put their education and training to use this summer throughout Latin America, Africa, Europe, Asia and on the island of Fiji.
