Undergraduate, graduate and medical students supported by the Dickey Center's Global Health Initiative have been working around the world in medical and health settings. Their blogs from Rwanda, India, Peru, Kosovo and elsewhere tell the story of their experiences in the field.
In January 2015, Ruth Heindel, an earth sciences PhD student, and Jessica Trout-Haney, a PhD student in ecology and evolutionary biology, went to Antarctica to conduct research. They created a blog that they used to answer questions from middle school students back in Windsor, Vermont. Here are some of the students' questions about deserts, ice sheets, helicopters and more.
