Meet Anna Eisenstein

When I arrived in Mbarara, Uganda I expected I would spend most of my summer conducting research the city's major public hospital. I wanted to understand how medical interactions shape health outcomes. What I did not expect was where my relationships with people there would lead me: into a whole variety of settings where patients are seeking wellness. As it turns out, the public hospital is often patients’ last resort; churches and herbalists are much more popular.

Interviewing indigenous Mayan women in their homes was not only fascinating but also eye opening in a lot of ways. We gained valuable insight into their culture, and their stories touched us so deeply we will always remember them.

Meet Anna Long

 

 

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.

Being granted the opportunity to work collaboratively with our Ministry of Health partners, I was given the chance to apply the concepts of my Masters of Public Health graduate program to real, substantive research. With sincere gratitude for the support of the Center for Global Health, I know that our work will contribute to improving the treatment outcomes and overall health of pediatric asthmatic patients in St. Kitts and Nevis.

In Ethiopia, we were not only able to put our academic learning into practice, but we were able to contribute ...The staff members and children at the transition home taught us about their country and their passions, and they became true friends.
