Hekang Yang, an international student from China studying in the Master of Arts Program in the Social Sciences, is the recipient of the 2018 Davis Projects for Peace Grant. Davis Projects for Peace is an initiative for students to design their own grassroots projects that promote peace and address the root causes of conflict among parties.
Kang will use the grant for his project, Curing the African Diaspora Community in Guangzhou, China: Disease Stigma and Health Care. He will spend six weeks in China conducting a health survey and working to bridge the gap between local health resources and the African community with the goal of creating a permanent health support system.
