As some of you might know, I was selected as the 2015 young ambassador on behalf of the MN Chapter of the Friends of St. Patrick and St. Patrick Centre in Northern Ireland. I am thrilled & humbled by such an incredible opportunity!
I will be spending two weeks taking in the sights, sounds and smells of the beautiful country where my family is from and learning about the culture and people of Northern Ireland.
During my time, I will be placed at a hospital where I will have the opportunity to further my knowledge and understanding of health communication. I will be blogging about my experiences during my trip and, after my travels, I will compile my findings to share with the MN chapter and interested individuals.
I look forward to my placement and the hands-on opportunities I will have that will tie in with my MA program in Health Communication that begins Fall 2015.
Stay tuned for upcoming posts from the land of leprechauns.
