Kate C.

Hello family and friends!

 

I'm taking another stab at this whole travel blog thing. I know I have failed miserably in the past, but this go-around I'm confident in having better access to the interwebs.

 

This site will be a fun way send updates about my work and travels through photo albums, videos, and journal entries. Feel free to respond with messages or reply to anything I have posted!

 

What Am I Doing?

As a MPH student focusing on International Health at BU, I have to complete both a practicum - health care work abroad - and the interestingly named 'Culminating Experience' (CE) - mine will be a research policy memo. 

 

I have decided to do my practicum through BU's five week intensive Health Care Monitoring & Evaluation course in Kimana, Kenya, with 25 classmates. Afterwards, I will be spending five more weeks gathering data for my CE research paper in Lusaka, Zambia, while assessing the pharmaceutical/counterfeit drug market as my professor's research assistant. And of course, after hard work comes playtime - I'll be off to Tanzania with some friends (try) to hike Mt. Kilimanjaro and then relax on the beaches of Zanzibar.

 

May 20-June 30: Kenya

July 1- August 7: Zambia

August 8-August 25: Tanzania -- Mt. Kilimanjaro and Zanzibar

August 26: Home sweet home

 

Soooo what?

So thanks for checking in when you do, and I hope you enjoy the stories and are having a great summer!

Sounds awesome Kate! I'll be in Lusaka June 26 - July 26. Victoria Falls is on! I'm also going to have some freedom in August - if you weren't doing a crazy hike I'd totally join you... ;)
