Summer International Health Fellows Create Ripple Effect in Session I

This summer started off strong with a number of initiatives that will last long after the Fellows depart. Across the globe they immediately dove in working on program development, clinical issues and, of course, saving a little time for fun too.

Take the Leap

So you see, what had happened was, I needed a change. I quit my job to go volunteer in the Dominican Republic... in a community that has limited electricity and running water, and almost never any hot water. What on earth was I thinking?! After months of debating with myself, I finally gave myself permission to take the leap, and dare to do something different. What I was about to embark on was risky and uncomfortable, which was not me at all.

International Nurses Day

Nurses are a huge component of what makes FIMRC's work possible, and so we wanted to celebrate their impact for National Nurses Day! Nurses are employed at many FIMRC sites, supporting both clinical and health education programming. They often run several of the programs on site, and we couldn't keep it together without them! Their efforts do not go unnoticed, and below we've highlighted the differences and similarities between two nurses that work in different corners of our FIMRC world.
