Dr. Laura traveled with the CORE Group in February to attend the Community Health Learning Trip at the Comprehensive Rural Health Project (CRHP) in Jamkhed, India. 

“I learned that while we work in very different contexts (in India versus in Nicaragua),” says Dr. Laura, “the essence of community health is the same: love the people, learn from the people, and work alongside the people so that together we can make a difference to improve the health of the most vulnerable."
