Recently Professor John Richards of Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, Canada and his graduate student Ms Afifa Shahrin completed a study of nutritional status of women from low-income households in urban and rural areas of Bangladesh. John is a founding director of the Bangladesh Health Project and also a member of IUBAT’s overseas advisory committee. Ms.Shahrin, a former instructor in BRAC University and recent graduate of SFU, engaged IUBAT College of Nursing students for some of the surveying. See http://www.theindependentdigital.com/index.php?opt=view&page=5&date=2012-08-31 for more on this. IUBAT has taken a pioneering role in the country’s higher education sector by supporting researchers, practitioners, and academics to undertake practical research on the policy problems facing Bangladesh (http://www.iubat.edu/cpr/). Several students and faculty from Canadian and US universities have completed research studies through IUBAT, providing College of Nursing students with an excellent exposure to research methods and academic expectations.
