Sovereignty is not given, it is taken - Weekly newsletter of Ahmed Negida - Issue #12
(1) The Global Neurosurg-1 study that we started in late 2018 has finally met the target sample size as of May 2021 with more than 1150 patients with traumatic brain injury registered from several centers around the world. This is an achievement for me and for my colleagues who work on the collaborative since I started working on this idea in May 2018. Building a global research collaborative is difficult particularly that I refrain from involving the political connections and professional associations in that work so it is a purely individual effort from the whole team. We have more to come and we still work on this project until January 31, 2022.
(2) Next Thursday, I will join the meet & greet session of the Harvard Program of Global Surgery and Social Change, Department of Global Health and Social Medicine, Harvard Medical School to get an orientation on the current labs in the program and vote for my preferences as an incoming fellow to the program for the upcoming two years.
New things that I found this week
Have you ever tried Sencha green tea?
If you have not, I advise you to give it a try. Sencha is a flower from Japan. Sencha tea has many good health benefits to the human body. It includes an average of 80 mg of Caffeine and it improves mood and cognition.
@Cilantro-Dokki, I recently found a parallel version of new tea called "Dark Forest" with fruit and I like it.
