Research data collection from satellite office in India

SJSM has established a satellite office in India. The specific responsibility of the office is to collect data on public health as per the recommendation of the SJSM faculty members. Some projects are related only to the specific conditions prevailing in India, some are designed as international projects aimed to compare conditions in different parts of the world, including Bonaire and Anguilla. Data thus obtained are processed and used to train students on the methodology of research and writing research papers.
