Anna Burrows: My Study Abroad Scholarship!
Along with 10 other nursing students from James Madison University, I have the opportunity to study abroad in the beautiful and endearing country of Kenya. We will work with staff in various health clinics and hospitals in order to gain an understanding of the health care delivery system and specific health conditions that have an impact on the people and children. We will also learn from nursing faculty of universities and schools of nursing and will work with Kenyan nursing students to provide health care. Community service such as providing care in free clinics and participating in health screenings and health promotion activities for school age children will also be included in this program.
