Family and Friends! I am excited to tell you all that after applying for an internship through the Global Health Perspectives (GHP) program at Denver School of Nursing I have been selected to go to Uganda in June of this year! As a member of the GHP program I have participated in numerous GHP meetings to learn more about global health issues and to hear stories of other internships/mission trips. I have also volunteered at many sites such as Habitat for Humanity, Weld Food Bank, The Denver Rescue Mission and I even organized a supply drive for the Ronald McDonald house in Denver. Applying for an internship is very competitive; over 30 students applied for the internship and I am one of four chosen to go to Uganda. GHP is partnering with The Mango Project to make this Uganda internship possible. The Mango Project has been involved in the rural and remote North West corner of Uganda for 11 years to fight malnutrition and increase economic activity. (Check out their website, www.TheMangoProject.com to learn more about everything they do). While I am in Uganda I will be assessing the community needs and doing cross-sectional health screenings in order to provide the Ugandan leaders with updated information on the most severe areas of malnutrition and disease. I am so blessed to have been chosen for this opportunity to use my nursing skills for those who are unable to receive them on a normal basis but I won’t be able to do it without you! My goal is to raise $3500 to help cover flight, housing and medical outreach supplies by May 5th. Every dollar helps! Please let me know if I can include you in emails about this internship or if you have any questions. I would love to keep you updated as I prepare and when I return from this amazing experience! Thank you so much for your thoughts, prayers and donations!

Love you all!

Miranda
