From School Project to Festival Screening

Yale Public Health Magazine, Yale Public Health: Fall 2023


Early in Russia’s 2022 invasion of Ukraine, African college students fled to Ukraine’s western border, seeking refuge in another country. Three recent YSPH graduates tell their stories.

Chidum Okeke, MPH ’23 (health care management), Mukund Desibhatla, MPH ’23 (chronic disease epidemiology, maternal child health), and Dr. Kelvin Amenyedor, MD, MPH ’23 (global health) created “African Wave: Voices Amidst Conflict Caught in the Crossfire of the Russian-Ukrainian War” for a class last spring. They submitted it to the American Public Health Association’s (APHA) Film Festival where it was accepted and scheduled to be screened ahead of the 2023 APHA Annual Meeting and Expo.
