"Using Gelardin spaces, equipment and instruction is a crucial component of this multimedia project and judging by the high quality of the students' posters and radio spots over the years, the use of these resources has very much contributed to the students' learning experience and the overall success of this class."

Myriam Vuckovic comes to Georgetown University after a number of years working in the international health sector. From 2001-2006, Prof. Vuckovic worked for the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Technische Zusammenarbeit (GTZ), in Germany. During that time she gained a great deal of experience in HIV and AIDS control, focusing on HIV prevention in Africa. As a long-time member of the German delegation to the Board of the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (GFATM), Prof. Vuckovic gained in-depth knowledge of international partnerships and policies in the field of HIV&AIDS, TB and malaria control. In 2006, she joined the Department of International Health as a faculty member, teaching “Maternal and Child Health in Developing Countries”; “HIV/AIDS: Who will live? Who shall pay? What can be done?” and "International Health Internship II: International Organizations."


For International Health Promotion (INTH 142), students work in small groups to create health promotion posters using Photoshop and short radio spots using GarageBand.
