Community health in Limpopo: Exploring management of diabetes and hypertension in a nurse-led, community-based health center in Limpopo Province
My experiences in South Africa this summer were formative in my leadership, teamwork, and research skills. I gained a wealth of knowledge about how to conduct a research project from start to finish (Institutional Review Board, grant applications, publications, and all). Not only that, but I was privileged to learn from the people and history of South Africa -- a country paradigmatic of the hope for reconciliation in the most broken of societies. It was a humbling experience that I will look back upon with fondness for many years.
