“Without my training here, I wouldn’t have the skills that empower me to help my community.”
- Lojuan “Kennedy” Maring
As a child, Lojuan Maring fled to Uganda to escape the deadly Sudanese civil war. Later, a scholarship allowed him to enter a master’s program at the Gillings School of Global Public Health, where he developed academic and leadership skills. Now, he is back in Africa, using his vital expertise in family planning and HIV/AIDS prevention and treatment.
The need to equip tomorrow’s leaders to tackle the critical global public health challenges that affect us all has never been more acute.
