Home stretch! 4 days to go!

December 27, 2018

Thank you so much to all of our wonderful donors who have already supported student training opportunities in the DRC! With 4 days to go in the campaign, we still have time to reach our participation goal but we need your help


Every additional donor gets us closer to our goal and helps support sending student trainees to the field in DRC to learn about implementing infectious disease prevention and control strategies. 


If you've already supported our campaign, thank you! If you'd additionally be willing to get word out about our campaign to others in your networks, any sharing helps tremendously and we would be so appreciative. Our page will be accepting donations until 12:00AM on Tuesday, January 1, 2019


Happy New Year from all of us at the UCLA-DRC Research Team!

Thank you for your support so far! 12 days to go!

December 19, 2018

Thank you to all of our supporters who have generously contributed to our campaign! With just under two weeks to go, we still have time to reach our goal to 25 donors in an effort to train the next generation of disease fighters. Every dollar contributed directly helps send a student to the field.


Fieldwork experience is critical to a public health student's academic and professional training and there is always a need to support our students as much we can. Please consider sharing our campaign with family and friends so we can reach our goal by the end of the year. 


Thank you to our amazing donors for helping us get to where we are already!
