Farewell to Cody in Moshi

It was a bittersweet goodbye as the Tanzania team said farewell to Cody Cichowitz, who spent the last year in Moshi working on the project as a Doris Duke International Clinical Research Fellow. The fellowship program, sponsored by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, supports the training and professional development of the next generation of clinical investigators working in global health by offering a year-long mentored research opportunity in global health.

Reflecting on his fellowship, Cody said:

“The program not only provided a unique opportunity to engage in global health research and build practical experience, but it also created a space to learn from and work alongside Tanzanian researchers. Working in Tanzania for a year helped me develop foundational research skills, but I’m most grateful for the relationships I built and the ways in which I was able to learn about the health care system and challenges facing patients and providers.”

Cody is an invaluable member of the Option B+ team, and while the Tanzania team will miss his presence at KCMC, we look forward his continued involvement in the study. We wish him the best of luck as he returns to Johns Hopkins University to complete his MPH and MD degrees.
