Dear Colleague,
Things are progressing well for our 2017 conference that is co-hosted by Johns Hopkins University and Makerere University.  Please note that the abstract submission deadline is October 12. Share this bulletin across your institution and help us attract superb abstracts from medical and non-medical disciplines.  As in previous years, we are delighted to announce that oral presentations will be published in a special edition of the Lancet Global Health and poster abstracts will be published in a special edition of the Annals of Global Health.
In September, we held a webinar with Liason International on Centralized Application Systems. We are exploring having a CAS as a benefit to CUGH members. We also held our first outreach webinar for members to let you know about our activities and receive feedback to better understand how we can improve the services we provide.
In this bulletin you will find information about how to register for our upcoming workshop, Oct 17-19, in Washington DC on "how to write effective proposals for grants offered by US funding agencies." We still have spots available so register now in the link provided below.
In this bulletin we feature two of our members: Tanzania's premier academic institution, Muhimbili University, and Development Aid.
Also, see below a report from Stanford University for the next US administration on Climate Change and Health; and information on how to submit for the UK's richest science prize, the Longitude Prize, which seeks to find a diagnostic test to identify antibiotic resistance.
We are continuing to raise funds to support travel scholarships that we provide to some of our LMIC colleagues to help reduce the financial obstacles they face to attend and present their work at our conference. Please see our website www.cugh.org to donate. All donations in the US are tax-deductible and all are applied to support this program.

Thank you for your consideration. Please help us spread the word and share this bulletin with your network.

Best wishes,
Keith Martin MD, PC
