Public Health & Turkey Fun.

• Santa Elena, Belize •

One of our tasks was to visit the residents in Western Belize. While our purpose was to conduct epidemiologic study and to raise disease awareness, it was just a pleasure getting to know the community.

Also, we made sure to always take time to admire the pet turkeys.

        • It’s different depending on the situation and trip length (my trips have been anywhere from 3 weeks to 2 years), but usually I research specific hospitals in whatever country I’m going to and contact them directly to coordinate all the details.

          I see you are applying to medical school? I think that’s wonderful. 🙂 Personally, every experience I have had abroad has changed my life and has shaped me into the kind of caregiver I am today. It wasn’t always easy (especially during longer trips), but I never regretted a single day.

          Best of luck to you in your endeavors! Don’t hesitate to keep in touch if you want to know anything. 🙂
