Over the years, students, have reflected on their global health experiences. Through writing, sharing, listening, and storytelling we can begin to derive clarity about the injustice we witness, embrace the complexities of the lives we touch, decipher the ambiguity of moral judgment in widely divergent cultural contexts, and imagine constructive action in response to our experiences. All current undergraduate, graduate and professional school students are invited to submit reflective essays in response to global health experiences- these may be in a research, educational, clinical, or service capacity. Please highlight the impact of your experience on professional development, personal growth or new insights you have gained into cross-cultural or ethical issues.
