Internship: St. Joseph's Mission Hospital in Migori, Kenya

“When I went to Kenya I was considering a career in the medical field. However, as much as I loved working in the hospital, several of the patients I saw did not live more than a few days because the diseases they suffered from were not curable. The loss of these patients made me realize that I could have a greater impact on the world doing medical research.”
