I am Lela Shengelia. Currently I am working in the National Center for Disease Control and Public Health of Georgia as a head of the Division of Maternal and Child Health. This division is responsible for maternal, child and adolescent health, reproductive health and rights national wide. As regards educational roles, I’m a tutor for undergraduate students in the field of biostatistics. From the research point of view, I’m involved in many aspects of research related with maternal, child and reproductive health. I was lucky enough to attend the respectable and comprehensive course around research methodology held in 2015 by GFMER. That course added much to my knowledge and allowed me to have sound research roles at my centre.
