Words from Douglas

I got to learn about diseases that I would face in my future travels as well as "tropical diseases" that are becoming more common in America.

It confirmed my interest in Tropical Medicine and infectious diseases. I want to learn more about tropical medicine and community building in order to impact other nations who need medicine, food, and infrastructure.

The program allows students to learn from experts of their fields. It exposes them to diseases, lab diagnostics, and other challenges that they would face in medicine abroad and in the US.
