It is our great pleasure to announce that our four students from the second year: Arnela Fazlić, Azra Smailagić, Muhamed Hajlovac and Nermin Đuzić attended the 36th Anthropology and Health Conference, whose main topic for this year was: Anthropology in the Service of Global Health. Organized by the Institute for Anthropological Research in Zagreb. The conference was held in Dubrovnik, Croatia, or more precisely, at the former Convent of St. Claire in Dubrovnik Old Town. This Conference preceeded the 10th ISABS Conference on Forensic and Anthropologic Genetics and Mayo Clinic Lectures in Individualized Medicine, which is actually being held from  June 19-24, 2017 at the hotel Palace Dubrovnik. 


The fact is that global health today faces many new challenges. These demand global solutions, but at the same time keeping anthropological perspective on global health focusing on local contexts where human growth and development happen under specific circumstances within certain (sub)populations, and where health and illness are recognized and responded to in many different ways throughout the world. Contemporary migrations without any doubt represent an increasingly important and emerging global public health and anthropological issue. What we are more proud to announce is the fact that our above mentioned students were the youngest participants and also rare representatives not only of our University, but also of our country as well.

In addition to very first plenary lectures that they successfully held in front of prominent and famous scientists from Croatia , they also published two abstracts, while our student Nermin Đuzić also successfully published his very first original scientific paper on the topic „Automatic Plant Watering System and its Applications for Anthropological and Medical Purposes“, which he was writing and working on with his colleague from Electrical and Electronics Engineering Department of our University, Dalibor Đumić, who is therefore, the co-author of just mentioned scientific paper, published in the 42nd issue of the well-indexed and popular Croatian journal Colegium Antropologicum.


Our students Arnela and Muhamed held plenary session on the topic “The effect of propolis on selected clinical isolates of bacteria“. We want to congratulate our students for this success and proof that every effort and work finally gets its reward. Also we want to congratulate and express the gratefulness to their professors that were worked hard with these students in order to make them prepared for this achievement.
