  • Our 17 Luce Scholars from the 2011-2012 class gathered in New York and San Francisco for their orientation June 21-29. They have now arrived at their individual destinations in 13 countries in Asia, including India for the first time in the history of the program. After two months of intensive language training, the new Luce Scholars will begin their professional placements in September. For bios of the new Scholars, click here.



  • Two 2010-2011 Luce Scholars have new publications in the public health field. Ted Alcorn, based in Beijing, has three articles in The Lancet, a prestigious peer-reviewed medical journal. The articles cover China’s organ transplant system, a review of China’s health reform process, and Mongolia’s struggle with liver cancer. Rayden Llano, based at Tokyo University’s Center for Global Health Policy, has contributed an Expert Brief on “Japan’s Evolving Role in Global Health” to the National Bureau on Asian Research. He is also a lead author in a Lancet series on Japan: Universal Health Care at 50 Years, to be published on September 1, 2011.
