IHCC Educational Webinar Series
Providing a collaborative platform for IHCC member cohorts to share scientific ideas, success stories, lessons learned, funding opportunities, and more!
Join Us Each Month!
IHCC is excited to launch a free monthly educational webinar series open to all IHCC member cohorts and others outside of the organization interested in participating. With the ultimate goal to bring cohorts together to enhance information-sharing and collaboration, this online series aims to provide a forum for cohort members to exchange scientific ideas, best practices, and lessons learned; showcase cohorts’ accomplishments, emphasizing LMICs; share international funding opportunities; and more. Each month a different IHCC member will be featured as a guest speaker.
June's Featured Speaker
Professor Catterina Ferreccio R. MD MPH
Dr. Ferreccio leads a research group, experienced in population-based epidemiological studies of health effects, in particular cancers, associated with chemical exposures (arsenic in drinking water, aflatoxins) and chronic microbiological infections (HPV, Helicobacter pylori, Salmonella typhi). Their field-epidemiology infrastructure includes strong ties with local universities, health systems and international collaborators. The group actively participates in the public health implementation of their findings. They designed and conducted the first National Heath Survey 2003, and the first Chilean population-based large cohort and biobank of chronic diseases, the MAUCO cohort. They run a high impact master program in Epidemiology and recently opened the first Chilean PhD in Epidemiology program, which Dr. Ferreccio directs. Dr. Ferreccio is currently a member of the COVID19 advisory committee for the MoH and the President of Chile.
Publications: 177 peer-reviewed.
Funding: CONICYT, NIH.
