Ohio State doctors, students work in Ethiopia

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Medical faculty and students from Ohio State University will be on their way to Ethiopia later this summer to do some good.

The Columbus Dispatch (http://bit.ly/12xBwwH ) reports that the team of 20 from OSU will kick-start a pilot project to address major public health problems — including cervical cancer, food safety and rabies.

The One Health Summer Institute involves the university's seven health-science colleges. Ohio State is calling it an unprecedented collaboration.

Faculty members and students will train future trainers in the African nation, and do research and outreach work to improve public health. Each person will be there from two weeks to two months.

The program is a partnership between Ohio State and two universities in Ethiopia.
