Something Awesome? Being a Medical Student in Nepal

july14.2Read about the experience of two medical students who recently volunteered in Nepal:

“Nepal is a remarkable country of kind people and spectacular valleys. The experience can be confronting but every moment is worthwhile, invaluable and a gift. In just 13 days I have gained a lifetime of recollections, a Nepali family and pen pals to keep in touch with. Although thrilled to have come back home, there is much that I miss. If I close my eyes, I’m back in the rear of the van, Saraswati and the women all chattering around me, the Nepali radio blaring through the open window, the breeze in my hair and my numb arm still stuck out the window.”  Read more here.
