Lincoln Pac, of the University of Colorado, Denver has been awarded a Fulbright-Fogarty Fellowship in Public Health to study in Uganda, the United States Department of State announced recently.
“My work in Uganda will be focused on comparing the causes of early death in HIV positive and negative patients in a rural Ugandan hospital,” Pac says. “The impact of tuberculosis, cryptococcus and cardiovascular disease will be of particular interest.”
Pac is one of over 1,700 U.S. citizens who will travel abroad for the 2012-2013 academic year through the Fulbright Student Program, an educational exchange program sponsored by the U.S. government to increase the mutual understanding between the the United States and other countries.
Pac grew up in Bozeman, Mont., and majored in biochemistry and German at Bowdoin. He is a fourth year medical student at the University of Colorado School of Medicine in Denver.
