To Gondar with Love
I have been chosen to go to Gondar, Ethiopia this summer to work at University of Gondar Hospital with 12 of my classmates. As many of you know I have my Master's in Public Health and it's focus is in global health. I have never been to Africa, and am really excited at this opportunity to scrub in surgeries, partake in child births, see infectious diseases that are not prevelant in the US and immerse myself in their healthcare system.
As a student, my hope is to raise money to offset my personal costs, in addition to expenses associated with bringing much needed supplies to the Hospital. I appreicate the love and your continued support. Hopefully I can repay this in many fold as a future physician. I look forward to keeping in touch after my trip. I will send a personal thank you card for your generosity.
