    Gelila Goba, MD:
    UIC  Assistant Professor of Obstetrics & Gynecology
    Division of Academic Specialists in General Obstetrics & Gynecology
    Fellowship Director, Global Women’s Health

    Dr. Goba has a major commitment to women’s health, both in Chicago and globally. She is the Fellowship Director of our Department’s Global Women’s Health Fellowship, and a core faculty member of the University’s Global Medicine (GMED) Program for medical students.  Additionally, Dr. Goba established The Mela Project, a four-year OB/GYN Residency Program through Mekelle University in Ethiopia.  Supported by the Chicago-based IDP Foundation, The Mela Project provides resident education, mentored research and OB/GYN faculty development in Mekelle; many of our faculty, and well as a growing number of faculty outside of our Department, donate their time to this Project. The ultimate goal is to establish an “OB/GYN Center of Excellence” at Mekelle University.  Under Dr. Goba’s leadership, The Mela Project is expanding regionally and beyond, to include South Sudan, Uganda, and Somaliland..

    Julia Geynisman-Tan, MD:

    In addition to reconstructive surgery, Dr. Geynisman-Tan's passion is working with survivors of sexual violence. While in New York, she created a Survivor Clinic for women who had experienced commercial sexual exploitation and has since re-started the clinic here in Chicago, now known as the ERASE Trafficking Clinic (erasetrafficking.org). She is a trained asylum evaluator for female genital mutilation cases and dedicates herself to advocacy and public service in women's health.
