Safiyo's Study Abroad

Hi everyone! My name is Safiyo Mohamud and I am a 2nd year International Relations and Diplomacy student. I have always dreamed of studying abroad and I finally have my chance! I have been accepted into a study abroad program through the College of Public Health at the Ohio State University to learn more about Japan’s public health system. It is a 3-week program and we will be attending lectures at the University of Tokyo in order to further our knowledge on the public health issues people in Japan are currently facing.

Japan is a country that displays a universal healthcare system is possible and affordable. The Japanese healthcare system rivals the US healthcare system while simultaneously still affordable to the everyday people. I hope to learn how public health is prevalent in the social, cultural, political, and economic factors of a society and learn to tackle the issue of health and equity. This program will be allow me to gain a global perspectivce and be very beneficial in my future line of work in the medical field and within the international community.

Unfortunately, I have only enough to pay for the program fees, but there are other out of pocket costs like travel and transportation costs as well as money for books. I would really appreciate it if you could donate, anything helps!
