Working with Stanford’s CARE on School Health Data

Posted on: August 10th, 2019 by Arogya World


Arogya’s Sandhya Ramalingam (center) presented Arogya World data to Stanford Medicine’s CARE team as part of our new partnership.

Arogya World is proud of its new partnership with Stanford Medicine’s Center for Asian Health Research and Education (CARE). We will initially collaborate on data analysis and publications from our Healthy Schools programs. We will provide the data we collect as part of our ongoing measurements and evaluations work to the team at Stanford, who will analyze it and help with manuscript preparation.   Together, we plan to publish the impact of Arogya’s programs in peer reviewed journals and at conferences.

“It is important for us to get a credible, external expert group to ratify the impact we believe we have achieved. While we also do our own analysis, we are looking to confirm our estimates with third party validation which is more accepted by all our partners and sponsors,” said Arogya World’s Head of Program Evaluation, Sandhya Ramalingam, Ph.D. after she trained the first group of Stanford interns on the schools data in July.

Stanford reached out after learning about Arogya World and our work streams. They are impressed with the large-scale public health interventions we run. Stanford CARE is committed to improving the health of Asians everywhere, and is interested in the access to real-world data that we can provide.
