"I learned so much about global health, what it means to be an advocate for others, and how to be more humbly and culturally competent. I would highly recommend this experience! Being able to contribute to an program that would be directly used in one of the FIMRC sites was such a rewarding experience- it was a privilege to be able to work on these projects with my peers and the amazing FIMRC staff."
