MSc Public Health for Eye CareContact Chioma James Nwaze
My professional background is in both clinical and community optometry where I deliver primary eye care. In my years of experience, I have been exposed to the gap in access to eye care services, particularly in rural settings. This has developed my passion to seek a robust approach towards narrowing those gaps.
Research interests or career goals
My research interest is in finding cost-effective mechanisms that will contribute towards reducing the burden of avoidable blindness, particularly in low resource settings.
Why I chose LSHTM/my programme
I chose LSHTM firstly because of its reputation for having a global impact on public health and secondly, because of the diverse and supportive culture of the staff and students which makes one feel at home while studying at LSHTM.
