"We will always need people to be willing to take risks, change the way things are done, and offer people help where it didn’t exist before, and I intend to be one of those people. With the skills and true confidence afforded to me by this fellowship experience, I know I will find success along the way."

2019 Fellow Constantine Unanka
Constantine built upon Fellow Gabriel's Beattie-Sergio's work to help children with asthma reduce the number of times a rescue inhaler is needed and the number of nights they wake from asthma systems as well as eliminate indoor environmental triggers and connect cases of landlord neglect to a legal team.
2001 NC Fellow William "Billy" Fischer on new Ebola therapeutic treatments
For the first time, investigational Ebola treatments are being used at scale during an outbreak in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, providing hope for people with the disease. Treatments are administered under a compassionate use framework. WHO clinicians are involved on the ground in helping determine best treatment depending on clinical criteria, complexity of administration and monitoring capacities.
