How did you get interested in global issues?
I was selected as a Rotary International Ambassadorial Scholar during a time when my research had moved from local/national into the international sphere. As I learned more about how disproportionate issued of health in the US impact people in less developed countries, I found myself passionate about how we might improve everyone’s quality of life by improving issues like clean air and clean water globally.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
We can help so many more people and have a more equitable society when everyone does better and lives healthier.

My compassion/humility list:
I will do the following for any friends or family who donates in my honor…

  1. Review/edit your dissertation/thesis or research paper (since so many of you are academics!)
