After investigating a case study on treating cataracts in India, the Global Health Fellows were fortunate enough to be able to observe cataract surgeries at Virginia Eye Consultants on March 19 and March 21. A huge thank you to Dr. Scoper, Dr. Lago, and the entire team at Virginia Eye Consultants for making this unforgettable experience possible for us!
On March 18, the Global Health Fellows attended a screening of Girl Rising, a documentary-narrative hybrid about nine extraordinary girls from around the world and the opportunities afforded them by education. It is clear the link between education and health, both on an individual level and on a community level, and the film spoke to each one of us. We encourage you to find or host a screening near you!
