    Travel Journal from Ecuador Quito, Ecuador | Fri Aug 03, 2012

    How can I possibly be going back to the States in just two days?  How did a month pass by so quickly??  Its going to be hard to leave, but I have to admit that I miss home - long hot showers, drinking tap water, living in the suburbs, family and friends... The past week has been a busy week!  On Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday I worked at Pan de Vida …

    Travel Journal from Ghana Elmina, Ghana | Thu Jul 26, 2012

    On Monday I checked the theatre for surgeries and upon finding out that there were only electives and emergencies I headed to maternity to do rounds with Dr. Eyensa.

When we arrived we went directly to the …

    Travel Journal from Thailand Chiang Mai, Thailand | Sun Jul 29, 2012

    This weekend I had the opportunity to go elephant trekking with our 5 Hands on Healthcare participants. I have to say, I started out a bit skeptical about the time and financial investment in the activity. I had ridden an elephant before on another trip to Thailand, and I remember the elephant seat being uncomfortable, the scenery lackluster, and overall, the experience had been pretty 'meh.' I was …
