Traveling to Uganda to partake in novel malaria research was an inspiring and immeasurably educational experience. In addition to learning critical epidemiological information on the disease, I expanded my global awareness, empathy, and interest in human health. I regularly reflect on this trip to contemplate how best I can use my skills and education to benefit our global community.
