As part of his Fulbright Scholarship experience, Professor Tim Carey from the Centre for Remote Health recently had the opportunity to meet with faculty at Kansas State University in Manhattan, Kansas under the ‘Fulbright Oz to Oz’ program.
Professor Carey was hosted by Associate Professor Ellyn Mulcahy, Director of the Master of Public Health (MPH) program.
The MPH at Kansas State University is an interdisciplinary degree with 4 areas of emphasis:
- food safety and biosecurity
- infectious diseases and zoonoses
- public health nutrition and
- public health physical activity
During the visit Professor Carey met with a range of different academics and delivered a seminar titled ‘Defining Health: Issues and solutions’.
The visit was extremely worthwhile and allowed Professor Carey to discuss possible ongoing international collaborations between Kansas State University and Flinders University.
