Global Impact

Global health can be an amazing adventure or an unsettling disappointment. We can make a big difference in the lives of people around the world or drain local resources and have a feel good vacation. In this episode we hear meaningful international impact stories and from global health experts on how we can make a meaningful impact as well.
