Congratulations to academic medicine scholar Jonathan Giordano (D.O. '14) on his first-place award in the outreach category of the BIOMEA/SOMA Abstract Competition! The award is given by the Bureau on International Osteopathic Medical Education and Affairs (BIOMEA) and the Student Osteopathic Medical Association (SOMA). His abstract, "Malaria Education of School Aged Children in Kwahu-Eastern Region, Ghana; Anansi Tricks Mrs. Mosquito," is the result of research conducted with the NYIT Center for Global Health.
During summer 2012, Giordano traveled to El Salvador and Ghana on missions organized by the NYIT Center for Global Health, and worked with NYIT teams of doctors, health professionals, and medical students to provide health care and educational resources to local populations. His next stop is the national Osteopathic Medical Conference and Exposition, Oct. 7 in San Diego, where he will present the award-winning abstract.
