Global Health Blog Highlight

Find that pot of gold—my working-abroad experience in Tanzania: When I grow old, I will hop on a plane to Ifakara, Tanzania, and to dig up that pot of gold that I buried in the summer of 2017. Thanks to Dalhousie Global Health Office and Universities Canada, I was very fortunate and beyond honoured to receive the Queen Elizabeth II Scholarship to work at Tanzania Training Centre for International Health (TTCIH) as a student more here.
