This week, St. John’s Research Institute in Bangalore, India, welcomed the inaugural class of the Maternal Health Young Professionals (MHYP) program.
The program, designed to strengthen the research skills of young health care professionals in India, kicked off with a weeklong intensive course in research methods. Eight young professionals were selected from across India to participate.
With the help of mentors from St. John’s Research Institute and their home institutions, each young professional will design and complete an innovative research project on a maternal health topic.
The young professionals will be blogging about their experiences in the MHYP program and sharing updates about their research on the Maternal Health Young Professionals blog. Follow along to learn more!
The MHYP program is supported by the Maternal Health Task Force in collaboration with St. John’s Research Institute.
