• My Wish for International Day of Happiness


    Mar 21, 2016
    I’m going to let you in on a secret. With every candle extinguished, every coin tossed in a fountain, each errant eyelash, I have—for as long as I can remember--wished for one thing: to always be happy. With Sunday’s International Day of Happiness on everyone’s mind, I can finally share that deeply-held secret—and wish it for so many others. Let me explain why.

  • World’s Most Dangerous Journey: The Fecal-Oral Route

    Mar 17, 2016
    The fecal oral route, not a journey to read about over a meal time, not romantic like stories of the ancient silk route, and not spectacular like driving along the Amalfi Coast of Italy. But it is a route taken every day by pathogens affecting millions of children from very low-income families.

  • My Motivation for Tackling Kilimanjaro

    Mar 04, 2016
    Studying for my Masters of Public Health in Boston, I discovered my passion for fighting NTDs during a semester-long project around their control and elimination. I immediately wanted to be involved in an organization making strides in a field I aspired to have a career in, but I didn’t know it would be less than a year later that I would get the opportunity by joining the 2016 Summit to See the END.

    Feb 23, 2016
    On February 10, India launched their second national deworming campaign that targeted 270 million children across the country. Yep, you read that correctly - 270 million! And, here is another big number - 900,000 - the campaign mobilized nearly 900,000 teachers, principals and health workers in schools and government-sponsored child and mother care centers to distribute the deworming tablets. Astonishing numbers, right?
