Mike, Mei and Katherine were excellent critical thinkers, full of energy and supportive colleagues during the past two weeks. They were teachers – sharing their knowledge of physical therapy with doctors, nurses, community health workers, patients and families. And, they were listeners – being sensitive to the culture, compassionate and responsive. Patient care in Malawi is complex. You have to think through what you are doing and consider the many facets of your care. Every step of the way, Mike, Mei and Katherine showed respect for the patients, their families and the hospital staff involved in care. We had a lot of fun together, as well. I hope their experience here has nurtured reflection and sparked a passion for global service.
Yendani bwino! Have a safe journey home.
