David Larsen: There are plenty of opportunities
for students abroad. I’ve personally had students go to Zambia,
working on different things from hand washing behavior, to monitoring sanitation coverage,
to working on malaria interventions. Lauren Borril: I got to go over this summer
to London and Geneva, Switzerland with Professor Olson-Gugerty on a two-week quick trip about
comparative health policy. Berkley Morgan: This past January, I traveled
to Nicaragua with a group of students from Syracuse Global Medical Brigades to reach
out to the community and offer them medical access, including a regular doctor’s check
up, from dental to gynecology, to a pharmacy for medicine. Ryan Patel: I am going to study abroad in
Grahamstown, South Africa, working with Rhodes University as well as some local high schools
in different public health initiatives. So, I am very, very excited. Larsen: I know other colleagues they work
on things like gun violence, lead exposure, drug policies, also, worldwide. Morgan: The biggest takeaway from the trip
to Nicaragua was how grateful I am for everything here–how easy it is to be able to get medicine
when I need it, be able to see a doctor when I need to, because down there, they’re not
able to. Borrill: We actually got to go to the World
Health Assembly. That was a once in a lifetime experience that
I got to do because of Syracuse and because of Falk. Morgan: It was an absolutely amazing. It was very humbling. I’m very grateful I was able to go down there.
