Fulbright Student Scholar to India 2008-09

Ophthalmology MD, 2010

My Fulbright Fellowship project will involve laboratory work with corneal epithelial stem cells and community outreach eye camps through the Aravind Eye Hospital, the largest and most productive eye care facility in the world.

It was wonderful to learn that I was awarded this opportunity spend nine months learning and living in India before I begin a career in Ophthalmology. I am very excited to begin this fundamental research that could improve the lives of patients in every corner of the globe.
