“What I have seen, even from only two years ago, is how young girls are believing more and more in their own abilities,” said Dr. Sharmila Anand, Managing Director for SEHPL in India. “When educators or family members give a ‘pat on the back’ to a child at the right time for a job well done, it can affect her for the rest of her life.”
Dr. Anand, who has given such congratulatory ‘pats’ to thousands of young women throughout her career as a social entrepreneur, doctor, and educator, was recently honored at the inaugural Annual Heroines of Health Awards ceremony at the World Health Assembly in Geneva, Switzerland. GE Healthcare and Women in Global Health joined together in bestowing the award to thirteen women from around the world who have been champions for improving global health for all areas of society.

VO2 max, which is the measurement of the maximum amount of oxygen that an individual can utilize during intense exercise, increases; resting metabolic rate after the exercise and glucose metabolism are also improved.
ESL Graduates Celebrate Success
What’s the first thing you do when you learn something new? Share it with a friend or family member. Lulu Alsalem, who graduated in 2016 from the ESL Academy, University of Colorado Denver, was pleased to discover how well the Academy had prepared her for university when she entered classes at CU Denver’s College of Engineering and Applied Science in Fall 2016. Naturally, she shared the good news with her younger brother, Doaij, who was living in Kuwait and interested in earning a dentistry degree in the United States. In May 2017, the siblings celebrated together, along with dozens of CU Denver friends, faculty, and staff, as Doaij and his Level 5 classmates graduated from the ESL Academy.
With “Diversity” strongly supported as a core value at the University of Colorado Denver, it’s no surprise that international students are quickly welcomed into an exciting array of events and programs specially designed to integrate internationals into life in the United States. Two of the most popular annual events, Spring Fling and Fall Fest, are a collaboration between student organizations, school departments and nonprofit and for-profit vendors; hosted by CU Denver, Metropolitan State University, and Community College of Denver.
