  • "My trip to Tanzania was life changing! I learned so much about the world, how we are all the same and so much about myself. I would recommend a CGE trip to anyone who wants to grow professionally and emotionally, push themselves and meet awesome people." - Saniya Chaudry, SOP, Tanzania 2019

  • "Traveling to The Gambia was an incredible experience. Having the opportunity to collaborate and learn from medical and public health professionals in a country facing both similar and different occupational hazards from our own in the U.S. was very interesting and educational. Our work on policy initiatives and forming relationships with the Ministry of Health felt productive, and I hope to have the opportunity to travel back to this region in the future." — Elyse De Laittre, SON, The Gambia 2018

  • "Conducting injection drug use research in Rwanda has been an illuminating opportunity. I'm happy to have experienced both the joys that graciously come with global health and the often-unexpected challenges that are also associated with such work. I'm grateful to have learned from Dr. Riedel and his years of experience in a system that operates differently than our own in the United States. It puts into perspective what realistic expectations I should set on an international stage in my own future career as a physician and, more importantly, as a humanitarian." - Kayli Workman, SOM, Rwanda 2018

  • "I had always thought of international ground work as being the most important asset in global health. This interprofessional experience allowed me to see a different side of policy and advocacy in global health. I hope to do more advocacy work for global health issues in my profession and continue with international ground work." — Gloria Rinomhota
