The second course really gives you all the information you need for an experience in global health. From packing lists to educating me on the health risks, i found that this course gave me the foundation i needed to travel abroad.

I've completed the first two courses and now feel well prepared to travel to unfamiliar parts of the world for global health. I really liked the videos and interviews with people who have done this before. They answered lots of my questions and offered great suggestions to help the newcomer prepare. The experiences they shared and the websites they included were really useful. I highly recommend this course!
