Dr. John Q. Wong, an epidemiologist and Health Sciences Program Faculty
member, "has been awarded $100,000 for using health data to identify the
most taxing health problems in the Philippines, helping his country expand
health coverage and reduce the costs involved.
The award is part of the annual Roux Prize offered by the Institute for
Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME), an independent global health research
organization at the University of Washington in Seattle. The recipient Dr.
Wong also identified and recommended specific, cost-effective interventions
for Filipinos, including blood pressure measurement, breast examination,
risk profiling for hypertension and diabetes, and smoking cessation."
