to Joe Hyder ('04)
for winning an FIC Scholarship!
Through the beneficience of the Friends of the
International Center, I worked in two public, free clinics in Quetzaltenango,
Guatemala. During my time there, I saw patients and even attended births
with Guatemalan medical students and physicians. The bulk of my time,
however, was spent in public health, outreach and fund-raising work for a
community clinic just outside the town. I am grateful to the Friends and my
Guatemalan co-workers and patients for making my time in Guatemala possible
and so rewarding.
