3 days to departure. Yikes…

The countdown has begun.  Immunizations completed, malaria prevention starts tomorrow, and adaptors purchased. 

It’s been a pins and needles situation getting the passports and visas back from Consulate, but they arrived today, along with the etickets for the final leg of the trip.  Looks like a green light!.  It turned from Summer to Fall in Ann Arbor this week, so now the heat and humidity of South Asia feels like something to look forward to!

A couple days ago we had our last stateside planning meeting.  From left, Dr. Martha Tanicala, Dr. Betty Beard–both from EMU School of Nursing; Patty Williams, President Global Health Services Network, moi, and Megan, an EMU Health Administration student interning with GHSN.  We’re ready and eager to begin our travels.  We are anxious to learn about Bangladesh, Chittagong, healthcare and Nursing in this new (to us) area of the world.  Between the three of us we do have extensive knowledge and experience in Nursing and healthcare.  And while we know we have expertise to offer, we also know we will gain as much as we will give.
