I love learning about Health in the Tropics, for a whole host of reasons; bringing me closer to a part of my family history; looking at health from an animal and environmental viewpoint as well as a human one; novelty; the people I have laughed with, ate questionable street-food with, and learned with. Many of my close friends have told me how full of excitement my eyes become when I have the chance to talk about Virology. I think that counts for something I am not yet articulate enough to fully explain.
