Project | Since 2019

In March 2019, we worked with health care professionals from Argentina, to investigate the prevalence and complications of Chagas disease in El Brete, Cordoba, a rural town in central Argentina. The group screened 147 people over two days. One of the main goals was to evaluate a new polymerase chain reaction (PCR) technique that some of the Argentinian investigators developed for early detection of Trypanosoma cruzi in the blood.


Additionally, members of the team conducted a one-day symposium about Chagas disease and global cardiovascular health for other faculty, trainees, and medical students back at the Hospital Privado Universitario de Córdoba. This venture was the inauguration of an education and research collaboration between Yale Cardiovascular Medicine, Yale New Haven Health and the Instituto Universitario de Ciencias Biomédicas de Córdoba (IUCBC) and Hospital Privado.
