Matthew DeCamp, MD, PhD, a post-doctoral fellow at the Johns Hopkins Berman Institute of Bioethics, received an Excellence in Global Health Advising Award from the John Hopkins Center for Global Health. Dr. DeCamp advised and mentored Sam Enumah, a medical student, throughout the design and conduct of a project interviewing recipients of short-term medical aid in the Dominican Republic.  Mr. Enumah nominated Dr. DeCamp, who was one of five honorees recognized by the Center and Johns Hopkins University President Ronald Daniels.

Mr. Enumah’s project was developed as part of the Scholarly Concentrations course required for all first year medical students; his particular concentration was co-directed by Berman Institute faculty members Joe Carrese and Gail Geller, titled “Medical Humanities, Bioethics and the Healing Arts.”
