Select from the following:
Dr. Chung lives in Nairobi, Kenya and has been involved in HIV treatment, epidemiology research, and medical education in Kenya and Vietnam since 2002. He has led randomized clinical trials on adherence to antiretroviral medications, cervical cancer screening and treatment, and transmitted antiretroviral drug resistance. In 2004, Dr. Chung co-founded the Coptic Hope Center for Infectious Diseases, an HIV clinic which has become one of the largest single-site antiretroviral treatment centers in Kenya. He is the Director of Treatment, Research, and Expert Education (TREE), a program dedicated to addressing the health needs of people living in resource-limited settings. Dr. Chung leads a UW partnership with the University of Nairobi to train fellows to manage the Kenyan HIV epidemic and to give health researchers more skills in information and communication technology (ICT). As co-director of the Department of Global Health’s E-learning Initiative (eDGH), he has pioneered the use of the internet to deliver UW academic courses to an international audience, building upon the principle that better medical education leads to better patient care. Dr. Chung co-directs the Mekong Health Collaborative which seeks to leverage UW academic resources to improve health in Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia.
