Projects examining climate change and urban health, substance use disorder and mental health, and the relationship between food insecurity and hypertension have been selected as the recipients of this year’s Hecht Global Health Faculty Network Awards issued annually by the Yale Institute for Global Health (YIGH).
The awards, which provide up to $50,000 in funding to the faculty network teams behind each project, are intended to support and encourage collaborative new initiatives addressing global health. Faculty from the Yale Schools of Public Health, Medicine, Nursing, Environment and Architecture are represented among the 2022 winners.
Established in 2015, the Hecht Global Health Faculty Network Awards have seeded a growing number of projects, acting as a catalyst for further study and funding of projects designed to improve population health and well-being around the world.
