In IHME’s Seattle offices, our cohort of young researchers, the Post-Bachelor Fellows (PBFs), spend their days – and sometimes their evenings – writing code, running numbers, and poring over the complex metrics that result. The research is all about global health, but they work locally until their turn comes for a stint of fieldwork abroad.
All summer long, IHME faculty and staff attended conferences and events, presenting and educating diverse audiences about our recent innovations and findings.
To understand what drives health disparities in a country, you have to decide where to begin counting.
