雷切尔·黑格斯雷切尔·黑格斯 first visited Tanzania as a graduate student in 2008. What she thought was an opportunity to see a new part of the world turned out to completely change the trajectory of her life.

十年后,Dr. Hagues leads Samford students on a service-learning trip to collaborate with the Africa Inland Church in Tanzania (AICT). Both social work and pharmacy students engage in an innovative two and half week curriculum that gives them opportunities to work directly with women from the Ukerewe and Musoma communities.

Dr. Hagues leads the program alongside Dr. Murphy from the McWhorter Pharmacy School and intends to grow new opportunities in Tanzania through 亚博体彩买球国外 for internships, 研究, 继续学习.

It doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll do 研究 in Africa, but it does mean you’re more aware of the needs in the world. It changes the things that we care about.” –Dr. 雷切尔·黑格斯, 亚博买球 Professor
