Dr. McGann was a leader in the development of a newborn screening and treatment program in the Republic of Angola. Toward this end, he worked and lived in Angola for much of two and a half years. This work helped to develop many relationships and is the foundation for much of his continued research and public health efforts in Angola. His research efforts during this time were supplemented by formal training in clinical research through the American Society of Hematology's Clinical Research Training Institute and through the master's program in clinical research at Baylor College of Medicine.

He is also actively involved in global hematology and global child health through such organizations as the Global Sickle Cell Disease Network, the Central African Sickle Cell Network (REDAC), the American Society of Hematology, and the AAP's Section on International Child Health (SOICH). 

Upon arrival to Cincinnati Children's, Dr. McGann was the recipient of the Procter Scholar Award, which will help to support his international research efforts.
