For the past eight weeks, MGEF medical student, Gloria Kotente Mumeita has worked alongside renowned doctors at Suburban Hospital (an affiliate of Johns Hopkins) to fulifill some of her remaining university credits. It has been a joy to have Gloria in the United States, and we applaud her bravery and conviction as she returns to Kenya with a wealth of knowledge and experience under her belt. Like so many of MGEF’s post-secondary students, Gloria is a role model to younger Maasai girls and “a local hero” back home.
You can read all about Gloria’s time at Suburban in this month’s issue of Dome, a publication for the Johns Hopkins Medicine Family, available online. We thank Suburban Hospital, Johns Hopkins, and the many, many doctors and staff who supported and mentored Gloria over the course of two months. With their help, Gloria is all the more prepared to graduate with her medical degree in 2016.
