Stuff About Me:

Greetings my dear friends and family,

In June I and some of my fellow trailblazers of the class of 2018 at Howard University of College of Medicine (HUCM) will be traveling to Gondar, Ethiopia to devote our time to discovering the health care operations of Gondar University Hospital. We will offer support and upliftment as well as supplies to bring good tidings from HUCM. As US citizens, we do not realize at times how truly blessed we are to have such sophisticated and elaborate methodolgies for administering health care. In third world countries, like Ethiopia, health care providers are forced to utilize very scant resources to adminster health care, and unfortunately hospitals are very far and few between leaving many people to die from treatable conditions. As a student doctor, I aspire to dedicate my medical career to international medical disparities. I believe that every human being, regardless of their circumstancs, has the right to receive proper health care. Although there are many healthcare issues in the US, our fellow brothers and sisters in third-world countries do not even have the abundance of resources of the high quality healthcare of America. I am so grateful that HUCM has given me the opportunity to begin to actualize my goal to improve the quality of international healthcare. So my hope is that you can place yourself in the shoes of those less fortunate in Ethiopia and donate to aid me in the beginning of my journey to the betterment of international medicine.
