From Germany To INMED And Papua New Guinea


Let me introduce you to Rebekah Rose, a medical student in Germany. Above is an except from her personal newsletter, chronicling Rebekah’s growing interest in international healthcare, her participation in the INMED 2016 Pittsburgh PA International Medicine & Public Health Hybrid Course, and direct flight to Papua New Guinea to apply all she learned through a supervised service-learning experience at Kudjip Nazarene Hospital, an INMED Training Site.


Says Rebekah, “My grandparents served as missionaries in Papua New Guinea and that my dad lived there for the first 17 years of his life… This history was however not the primary reason for my choosing this place—I chose it because the hospital and work there appealed to me… I don‘t know what God has planned, but I do find this amazing (that Kidjip is just 20 miles from where my father lived) and feel truly blessed to be able to be right there and live in the culture and with the people that meant so much to my grandparents and among whom my dad was raised.” Please enjoy reading Rebekah Rose’s complete newsletter account.
