After I returned from Rwanda, each time I passed my to do list, my pencil hovered to cross off Rwanda–I could not do it. Rwanda was not finished.

I am thankful to Team Heart for saving my life and allow me to return to my studies energetically and it does me proud to be studying public health

Rwanda can eradicate rheumatic heart disease in a generation-it is an achievable goal

I consider being a part of Team Heart to be the biggest achievement in my nursing career, and one of the best parts of my life!
