Dr. Ista Pulu is visiting from Roing, India, where he is the only OB/GYN for a region serving 25 tribal villages. The area which Dr. Pulu serves is a large mountainous region with almost impassable terrain and poor resources. He is also part of an international collaboration between USF and the Research Institute of World's Ancient Traditions Cultures and Heritage (RIWATCH). He is giving a presentation about Maternal and Child health challenges in a remote Himalayan mountain setting. The presentation is co-sponsored by the Colleges of Public Health, Pharmacy, Medicine, USF World, and The Asian Alliance of USF. A small dessert reception will follow the presentation in the COPH lobby.
