Priyanka Rao

Undergraduate Student, Duke University

Priyanka joined DGNN through the Bass Connections team, “Evaluating Interventions Aimed at Improving Neurosurgical Patient Outcomes in Uganda” headed by Dr. Fuller. She originally joined when she was a freshman because she wanted to understand how to properly conduct Global Health Research and learn about healthcare systems of other countries. Throughout these past years on the team, though, it has become so much more for her. She has learned how to work efficiently as a team, enhance her communication skills and implement a proper global health research question. She has learned that global health research is never easy and most likely will never go the way one hopes, but in the end it is always rewarding.
