I have some exciting news about my plans for May 2015! I will be traveling to Tokyo, Japan to study abroad!!!! Currently, I am a third-year, Environmental Public Health major at The Ohio State University. "Environmental Public Health?" you may ask. Environmental Public Health consists of all of the physical factors/hazards that may affect the health of a community, including air, water, and soil hazards. Many environmental factors affect underserved and minority populations, and those are the populations in which I am most interested.
My trip to Japan will expose me to the environmental health problems that are most prevalent in Tokyo, studying under world-renowned environmental engineer, Dr. Ibaraki. I will be studying at the University of Tokyo and engaging in meaningful field experiences to local hospitals, toxicology labs, and relevant sites at Hiroshima. For more information about the trip, feel free to contact me or visit this website: http://oia.osu.edu/getting-started/search-programs.html?sasid=440&country=®ion=&lang_used=&term=&subject=Public%20Health&duration=&prgtype=&keyword=&type=category
While I have earned some funds from OSU scholarships, my trip is still very expensive. If you are able to contribute to my study abroad experience, your gift will be greatly appreciated! If you are unable to contribute financially, but want to offer your support, please keep me in your thoughts and prayers as I prepare for my trip!
Thank you for your time and I look forward to sharing my experiences with you all!
