A good part if this blog will be dedicated to my time working in Béré, Tchad, at Béré Adventist Hospital as a project manager in the public health department. Primarily, I will be working on Project 21, a all encompassing malaria program, as well as some clean water initiatives. There will be a mix of assessment, research, general hospital duties, dental work, and community development thrown in to the weekly mix of activities.
Learning about new cultures, languages, and foods will be a gargantuan part of my time here.. Having never been to this region before, I have a lot of learning to do! I’m sure I’ll have to hit the ground running!
