Public Health Education

Aloha everybody! My name is Lahela and I am currently a college student at Brigham Young University. I am majoring in Public Health with an emphasis in Health Promotion. Recently, I have been given the opportunity to travel to Europe with a few of my classmates and professors that I really look up to. Our main goal is to learn more about Global Health and identify the differences between American values and our lifestyle with the European lifestyle. My hope is to learn innovative ways to tackle public health challenges such as obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and other chronic conditions so I can come back and share my manaʻo (knowledge) with my community. Unfortunately, this amazing opportunity requires a lot of money that I, a poor college student do not have, even with two part-time jobs. I have applied for countless scholarships, and although they have helped a little, it is still not enough to fund the trip. If I cannot find the means to pay for this amazing opportunity, I will sadly have to withdraw from this trip. In no means am I asking you to fund my whole trip, but whatever you can spare, I will graciously accept and be forever thankful. Thank you all for all of your love and support! Mahalo nui loa!
