For about a month now SHLI’s very own, Dr. Gigi Bastien, has been in Liberia conducting Ebola research under her recently recieved Fogarty Fellowship. On October 10th Dr. Bastien was asked to deliver the key note address at a World Mental Health Day event in the absense of the keynote speaker. She did a tremendous job at representing Morehouse School of Medicine and SHLI! See a few photos below from the event.
