Drawing from his unique experiences working with GECC at Nyakibale, Ryan plans to return home in June 2014 to pursue a career in medicine. He says that his extraordinary experiences working at Nyakibale have changed his perception of public health initiatives and medicine as a whole, and that these experiences will without a doubt play a large role in his future work in the medical field. GECC is extremely grateful for Ryan’s dedication and hard work focused on strengthening the ECP program at Nyakibale.
In addition to Ryan’s voice on this blog, we will occasionally invite GECC board members, volunteer physicians, ECPs, and others to write guest blog posts to increase the depth of perspective on GECC’s unique and innovative programming. In the coming posts, we will explain GECC’s work on the ground in Nyakibale, as well as introduce GECC’s new opportunities for 2014, including new collaborations in Uganda, scaling up the ECP program in Uganda, and expansion to Kenya and Cambodia.
