Undergraduate Student Working in Malawi Blogs About Experience

Class of 2009 student Amber Draughon was selected earlier this year unc_logoas the first nursing student and only undergraduate ever to work on the UNC-Malawi Project that focuses on HIV research. She will be in-country from July 27-Aug. 20, and she will be blogging about her experiences and posting pictures as she is able.

While there, she will split her time between research and clinical work under the supervision of the clinic’s director of nursing, concentrating her efforts on pediatric and maternity units. According to Draughon, she anticipates her responsibilities being similar to those of a nurse aide in the United States – fluid management, catheterizations and all personal care.
