Working Groups

DUCIGS & Africa Initiative Working Groups

Within this program are a number of thematic working groups that are both interdisciplinary in their membership and student-driven in their design. Meetings are held roughly four times each semester, during which students are encouraged to share their individual perspectives on issues of a global nature. Often selected readings are discussed, and students have the opportunity to share their own research with the group and to receive feedback from a variety of disciplines. DUCIGS & Africa Initiative provide financial support to these groups.

For 2017 - 2018, the Africa Initiative is proud to co-sponsor the following groups:

Exploring Traditional Medicine in Africa

Organization: Duke University Graduate and Professional Students Association (DAGPSA) 

Neurosurgery in East Africa

Organization: Duke Global Neurosurgery and Neurology (DGGN)
