GPSA Presents at Duke University

GPSA Presents at Duke University

GPSA regularly presents their work on Duke’s campus.  Here’s a few photos from a recent poster and panel presentation given by recent GPSA participants in Belize.

 

Dr. Fitzgerald, Dr. Calman and Dr. Malkin (GPSA’s founder and director) discussed the role of students in global health work, moderated by Brittany Ploss, GPSA’s Assistant Director.

 

 

A poster session with GPSA participants generated some great discussion.

ASIJ has arrived with GPSA and is already making a difference.

 

Screening people for glucose at a health fair is one of the most important things that the students complete during this health fair.

Everyone arrived safely.  We are getting ready to visit Duke tomorrow.

This is a lovely day.  We are in a small town surrounded by trees and lakes. We learned some basic knowledge in the afternoon.  I am excited to learn more.

Such a long flight.  Glad to meet everyone.

杜克大学超级棒!教授超级棒!大家都超棒!-  佳玉

今天参观了杜克,希望明天一路顺风  Annie

Today we have been to Duke University. It is a pretty big campus with many buildings that look alike. I was kind of worried whether the students there will get lost. We heard two lectures and we did some practice in the afternoon as usual. I am looking forward to our trip tomorrow.

今天我们去了杜克大学,杜克大学是一个很漂亮的校园,很多建筑物都十分好看。我十分喜欢今天参观!

今天坐了一天的车,好累呀 annie

血压量不出,怎么办呀 Hayley

没有中餐吃,真的难受呀 Lydia

方言听不懂,头好疼呀 Helen

Today I went out to work with a community health worker named Sam. We visited four families in total and they differed very much. I’ve had many valuable experiences and I am now looking forward to the health fare tomorrow.

今天去了几位病人的家里,帮他们做身体检查,第一次帮别人做身体检查。这是一次很棒的体验!

We have visited four patients today and I have noticed some differences, like the attitudes towards the diseases and knowledge about the consequences. Anyway, it is a great day for me!  — Hayley

又是漫长的一天,今天我们见了镇上的一些病人,明天会做更多的调查,希望一切顺利。Annie

 

Today we went to a health fair to give people free health check. I found it hard to make people realize that it is actually important to get a clearer picture of themselves. We also vistited two museums in the afternoon.

今天看了九个病人,虽然天气很热,但是很有成就感,可以帮助这里的人们使我们很开心。这里的病人和中国的病人很不一样,我们在这里学到了很多,使我们学有所用。总之今天是十分充实的一天! ——Hayley

今天我们一起去了health fair,与农场主人卖农产品给这里的市民,我们分组在旁边摆摊,并吆喝一些市民过来做免费的健康检查。今天的体验感觉十分棒,虽然刚开始的时候有一些忙,也十分的紧张,但慢慢调整过来后就好多了!

今天我们去了社区的集市为当地的居民提供免费的健康检查,但是比起我们帮助人们检查健康,倒更像是他们帮助我们在完成课题。或许今后我们需要更好的办法真正帮助解决他们面临的健康问题。 ANNIE

今天继续和当地健康中心的人见了一些糖尿病康复项目的病人。镇子不大,但是人们的房子分布在各处,工作人员想要到访各个病人的家通常需要很长的通勤时间。晚些时候我们参加了一个MEMORIAL RUN来纪念一位不久前死于交通事故的女士,十分有意义。

今天我们参加了镇上的纪念跑步活动,和教授一起完成了五公里的跑步,虽然过程十分痛苦,但是完成之后的成就感很大!很喜欢今天的活动,因为我们体会到美式的活动! —– Hayley

我们昨天去了一些病人的家里,感觉他们每个人的家都很小很温馨,病人们都很随和,完全看不出来他们是病人。今天我们做了另外一个health fair,今天给很多人做了身体检查,没有上次那么紧张。今天还去了hiking,我们一共走了一个半小时,过程很辛苦,因为天很热而且很晒。但没想到结束后身体很轻松!Lydia

Today we went to another health fair. We went through many more patients compared with the health fair held the day before yesterday. I was very glad about that. Yesterday we went to patients’ home with the community health worker. I think now I can understand the West Virginia accent much better than before.

在早上的集市上我们再一次进行了健康检查的活动,很多人愿意来免费参与进来。这是我们第二次参加这个活动,比起上一次,我们更加从容镇静,在检查的同时我们可以更加自然地和病人们进行交流! — Hayley

今天我们继续在当地的集市上为人们提供免费的健康检查,下午在附近的山上进行了一个小型的徒步活动,太阳出来以后天气就很热,其实并不太适合户外活动,希望没有中暑,也希望明天骑行的时候天气可以舒适一点~
Annie

Today we went biking in a park. The normal bike was just so heavy that I was always worrying about falling down. In the afternoon we cook a lot of Chinese food. We finished most of the food by ourselves.
今天我们参观了一个位于弗吉尼亚州的公园,在公园里骑了电动自行车,这大概是这几天最愉快的一次出行了。Annie
今天我们一起去了一个公园,公园风景很美,我们还在公园里骑车,很舒服。我们四个还一起做了一顿很丰富的中餐,每一道菜都十分好吃!希望下次还有机会能够一起做一顿中餐。 LYDIA

 

今天是我们最后一天帮这里的病人做身体检查,一共看了六位病人,六位病人都有糖尿病,深刻的意识到这里的健康问题严重性。虽然马上就结束了,但十分希望这几天我们所做的这些能够对这里的病人有一点点的帮助! LYDIA

Today we went home visiting with the community health workers again. We had more communications with the patients compared with the two times before. I found many of the patients were interested in our experiences back in China.

又是一天的home visiting,我们越来越熟练,在给病人测试的间隙,我们可以和病人进行一些交流,了解他们的日常生活,和他们交流一些中国和美国之间的不同于相同之处。他们都非常的善良友好,越来越喜欢这个项目了! —- Hayley

今天是home visiting的最后一天,又是很长的时间在路上,虽然很累但是今晚完成了我的展示很开心!明天我们要去参观一个康复中心,据说很有趣,希望最后几天能够有一些愉快的经历!ANNIE

Today we went to two rehab center for people addicted to drug. I was surprised to find that people here treated addiction as a disease instead of a moral issue, and I also found that people here can get drugs much more easily than China. I felt so sad that many of them were actually led by their parents and relatives. Fortunately, there are many people trying to help them.

我们四个今天去了三个戒毒中心,听了那里的人们讲述自己的故事。其实,我们都十分震惊,对于我们来说,在中国,我们很少有这样的机会近距离地接触病人,他们都非常的善良诚恳,我很喜欢他们~~ Hayley

今天是在威廉森的最后一天了,我们参观了几个当地的REHABILITATION CENTER,听了里面的人们分享他们的故事,收获很多。明天我们就要启程返回杜克做最后的报告了,这是一个很愉快的旅行!annie

今天是我们最后一天呆在Williamson,明天就要回到杜克了,很感谢在这里照顾我们人。今天参观了三个戒毒中心,觉得他们每个人的故事都十分坎坷,现在他们自己也在尽力变得更好,十分的感动,为他们加油! LYDIA

Today is our last day for the program. We stayed in bus for more than half a day and did our final presentations in the afternoon in Duke university. I found our dorms in North Carolina so comfortable after staying in West Virginia for more than a week.

今天是我们活动的最后一天,我们做了最后的展示。每个人都做得十分的好!我十分喜欢这个活动,很喜欢在这里遇到的人!如果有机会,我希望以后能够再参加一次! LYDIA

最后一天在GPSA,进行了总结与反思,我意识到这次的活动不仅仅是我们可以帮助这里的人们,我们也从这次的活动中学会了珍惜自己的生活~~ Hayley

今天是项目的最后一天了,时间过的很快,12小时后我们就要动身前往机场了。这是一段很奇妙也不同寻常的经历,会想念这里的大家!ANNIE
