Reality of Healthcare Structure in Nepal
Global Studies Scholarship Supports Student’s Practicum
Breaking out of what is often referred to as the “U.S. cultural cocoon”, Suzanne Lewis, who is studying for her master’s degree in public health at the Colorado School of Public Health, entered completely new realities of lifestyle and healthcare structures during her studies in Nepal. Lewis was able to participate in a faculty-led Global Health Practicum in the Nepal Winterim Program after receiving the Global Studies Scholarship, which is offered through the Office of Global Education, Office of International Affairs.
“I am working towards completing my Global Health certificate, so it was really important and valuable to have a global health experience that takes me outside of the classroom and into a real international setting,” explained Lewis.
