Countdown to Departure: 15 days until June 6

Friends and Family,

It is with great happiness that I invite you  to follow me on my summer journey to Lilongwe, the capital city of Malawi.  While there, I'll be working at Kumuzu
Central Hospital with the UNC-Malawi project and specifically with two UNC surgeons and my soon-to-be-medical-student travel partner Amblessed.  Throughout our three weeks there, we will be managing the care of Malawian patients.  I've gone to travel clinic, gotten my vaccines and gobs of malaria prophylaxis, and I am ready to go!  I cannot express how thankful I am to the scholarship that made this travel experience possible for me (thanks, UNC!) and I look forward to updating everyone on our clinical and non-clinical adventures.

Zikomo Kwambiri (Thank you very much in Chichewa)!


For those of you wondering where in the world Malawi is, here's a map...
