Public Health Student Wins GSA STEAM Scholarship
UCI Generation Study Abroad STEAM Scholarship winners: Donna Lu (UCEAP Thailand Summer 2015) - winner for GSA STEAM scholarship
Donna Lu is a Public Health major and will promote study abroad programs to fellow Public Health majors through class announcements upon return, and through photos and videos on her blog. She hopes to capture the hands-on fieldwork she will be doing at the Thai-Myanmar border, so that viewers can witness and understand the health care challenges of a border population.
Donna is interested in community improvement through health development. She chose Thammasat University’s Public Health program because of the opportunity to learn about health care challenges in a different community through hands-on experience. She plans to apply what she learns to her career goal of preventing health disparities at a community and global level. She is passionate about community service and is excited to do something beneficial in Thailand in addition to learning valuable lessons applicable to her own community.
