He has also continued his work with the University of Michigan’s nursing school on global health research projects.

His recent recent research publications include:


“The GHDI was an integral part of my education and formation as an engineering student at U of M. In addition to helping cultivate the technical skills learned in class, it provided the opportunity to engage the Ghanaian people and to work together to come up with a design and product that would help women in their communities. The GHDI program opened many doors for me to continue to do research in Ghana and Liberia since graduation. Working with vulnerable populations through the GHDI has provided me with unique perspectives and intangibles in the way that I approach patients in the clinical setting.” -Joey Perosky
