Health Opportunity from Macaulay

Interested in a Medical or Public Health/Policy Related Project?

This summer, work on a health project with Dr. Tomoaki Kato, Surgical Director of the Division of Abdominal Organ Transplantation at Columbia University College of Physicians & Surgeons. Project plans involve campaigns to raise awareness of and conducting screenings for Hepatitis B epidemic in the Asian American population in New York City, as well as campaigns to recruit organ donors in NYC, which has one of the lowest rates for donation in the nation. If you are interested, please contact him at (212) 305-5101 or tk2366@columbia.edu. For reference, earlier this year, Dr Kato's team performed the impressive auto-transplantation surgery, during which six organs were removed from seven-year-old Heather McNamara, who suffered from a tennis ball sized tumor in her digestive tract.
