Global Health and Health Management

What are your career goals?

To contribute to global vision care through sustainable programs and innovative approaches

What sparked your interest in global health?

After a 2-week program in Chittagong, Bangladesh with ORBIS flying eye hospital, I discover the reward of working to improve the life of those in developing countries.  It is not only personally rewarding to see how the impact continues beyond the reversal of disease but also how this alters the patients other aspects of life, such as social interaction, quality of life and contribution to family and community.

How do you see yourself making a difference in public health because of the Global Health Scholarship?

I aspire to acquire the skills of problem solving in public health and global health to allow me to design and implement programs in developing countries to prevent blindness and increase facilities for vision care.

Who inspires you and why?

I have been lucky to be surrounded by mentors who are continuous contributors in the global health community.  It is not possible to pinpoint one person.  The team at ORBIS flying eye hospital, both full-time and volunteer faculties, inspired me with their persistence, passion for making a difference and compassion for patients and motivated me to try to make a difference myself.
