This is my second year participating in the PBHA trip to the Navajo Nation, and my first year co-leading the program. This trip continues to provide me with the valuable opportunity to gain exposure to a completely different and extremely resource poor area of the United States. As a student interested in pursuing a career in international health care delivery, I am deeply motivated by the work our team is able to complete during our trip. I look forward to immersing myself in the unique culture and exploring the health care delivery system on the Reservation this year, as well as facilitating discussions and reflections with my team as we share together in this service-learning experience.So, I am dedicating my January to service and need your help to do so. I, along with 8 other students, are traveling to New Mexico to participate in a service project on the Navajo Nation Reservation through Phillips Brooks House Association (PBHA) at Harvard. Our team, along with an epidemiologist and pediatricians, will provide medical care and health screenings in partnership with local Head Start programs as well as work at food banks and for community outreach programs.
