Susan Kienne in Uganda

“On one of her many research trips to rural Uganda, associate professor of global health Susan Kiene and her family were invited to dinner by a local villager. The woman served her guests chicken—a big gesture in an area where meat is expensive and typically reserved for special occasions.

As a scientist, Kiene is driven by data. In Uganda, she tests methods of linking individuals who receive home-based HIV testing to health care services and treatment. She has also begun research in Brazil, studying how to improve the health care of drug users with HIV and tuberculosis.”
