Thank you for visiting my blog! I am excited to be venturing to India this April. I hope you enjoy following and learning with me through this journey. My desire to go on this trip literally across the world stems from my interest in global medicine.
Currently I am finishing my fourth year of medical school and am preparing to a start pediatric residency in the summer. As I delve deeper into my training I am learning more and more about the importance of connecting with people across a variety of borders to collaborate in the effort of helping those in need. I would like to be an active participant in these efforts now and in the future. I am grateful for the opportunity through Child Family Health International (CFHI) to travel to India in order to work with and learn from some of the physicians in Pune.
My goals for this trip are to:
1.) Enjoy the journey!!
2.) Develop a better understanding of India’s health care system (the good, the bad, and the in-between)
3.) Learn about the common diseases and health concerns of women and children in this area face
4.) Become more familiar with this beautiful, vibrant country and its people.
These goals are subject to change as these next few weeks unravel 🙂
I am excited for the opportunity to join the team at CFHI and am extremely grateful for the scholarship they have provided. CFHI focuses on bringing people from many different cultures and backgrounds together in an environment of learning, with the goal of bettering health care for the global community. I am honored to be a part of this mission and hope that you enjoy learning along this journey with me.
Thanks again for joining!
