This trip offers participants insight into the health issues faced by communities in sub-Saharan Africa and will provide a valuable learning experience for anyone interested in global health.
While we hope to make a difference in South Africa, our main goal is that the experiences gained and lessons learned on this trip will continue to influence our decisions for the rest of our lives.
