Residents receive AAD Travel Grants

Friday, November 30, 2018

Christopher Henderson and Jigar Patel, second year residents, received travel grants from the American Academy of Dermatology.

Dr. Henderson received the Native American Health Service Resident Rotation Program Grant to participate in a rural health elective in Chinle, Arizona.  He will provide dermatologic care to the Navajo Nation population and work with primary health care providers to assist with diagnosis and management of dermatologic diseases.


Dr. Patel received the Resident International Grant to participate in a four-to-six week elective in Gaborone, Botswana, where participants rotate between the Princess Marina Hospital, in conjunction with the Botswana-UPenn Partnership, and the Baylor International Pediatrics AIDS Initiative (BIPAI).  Residents take part in dermatologic HIV care for both children and adults, and visit outreach sites in Francistown and Southern Botswana.


Congratulations to both on their awards!
