Intern Spotlight!

Thanks so much to amazing MedPLUS Connect Intern and Donation Request Coordinator Catherine!!! .

Catherine is a senior at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill majoring in Biology and African Studies. Her interest in Ghanaian public health first began when she joined Project Heal, a student organization at UNC founded by Emma & Lauren (, as a freshman. Following this interest she studied abroad at the University of Ghana and returned to Ghana this past summer through Project Heal. On this four-week trip to Ghana she led an initiative to build composting pit latrines with slabs in Lawra, a rural town that partners with MedPLUS Connect. She joined the MedPLUS Connect team last year as Donation Request Coordinator, and hopes to continue expanding this role throughout the coming year!
