the Center for Young Women’s Health at the Children’s Hospital by Nathaniel Tran Sep 03

I remember my middle school science teacher telling me, “Put good in, get good out!” as she reminded my class to eat breakfast and snack throughout the day if we needed to.

 

When I first started working with the Center for Young Women’s Health at the Children’s Hospital of Boston, I thought I would be interpreting and explaining medical procedures to patients. I soon realized that the Center does not exist primarily as a physical location. Instead, it is an online collection of resources for adolescent women to educate themselves regarding nutrition, health maintenance, sexual and reproductive health, and mental health. As a educational resources intern, I work with the Center’s director to identify and create health guides for Spanish-speaking patients.

GlobeMed at Tufts: GROW Team Takes Kathmandu

by tuftsigl

Hi everyone! At the end of our second full day in Kathmandu, we’re sitting on a romantically lit roof-top garden, trying to remember all that’s happened in the past two days. So far, it’s been exciting/tiring/eventful/overwhelming and especially eye-opening. We are exhausted, but we are enjoying it.
