Robyn Norton began conducting research on how best to prevent and manage injuries 30 years ago. Her passion and dedication to improving the health of communities globally led her to establish The George Institute for Global Health 20 years ago.
The George Institute for Global Health is pleased to announce the launch of a new partnership with the NCD Alliance (NCDA). The partnership will foster dialogue and dissemination of research on evidence-based policy interventions to address noncommunicable diseases (NCDs), and promote knowledge sharing within the global health community.
